in Washington Twp. on what used to be the Obed Stevens farm and later the John Hull farm and later owned by Mr. Harvey Preble.

RUDISYL, Clarice~~ w/o Sylvester Rudisyl - (There were no dates on this plain limestone marker. The story is told of this marker that the poor but loving husband had no money wherewith to buy his dead wife a marker but he went down to the creek near Dillsboro and secured a smooth piece of limestone on which he laboriously scratched the inscription given above. Then he wheeled the stone on a wheelbarrow out to the Hull Cemetery and marked his wife's grave. M. Preble said he had a very reverent respect for this loving husband. ca 1930s)
