Note: I'm looking for the monument. I have a copy of a photo of the actual monument. Only information I have, is that it is located near Bledsoe's Lick. It's inscribed "In memory of the Lone Hunters." Would appreciate any information you might have. Thanks.

Here's what I can read from my copy of the picture:

Isaac Bledsoe
Abraham Bledsoe

Spellings are transcribed as they are spelled on the monument.
