The Formerly Missing Jesse Lee Reno Marker

I thought I saw this marker a couple of weeks ago. I went back tonight to check and sure enough, it was there!

Side One:

That's the head of the "Pioneer Mother" monument silhouetted in the background.

Side Two:


Shot from the base of the "Pioneer Mothers" monument. You can see her foot.:


It is was recently re-erected along Route 40 in Woodsdale Section of Wheeling. It is grouped with the "State's Birthplace" and "National Pike" markers.

You'll notice that the wording on this marker was also revised. Something was removed at the end of the last sentence just after "Georgetown. I'll try to find out what. Edit: The word Maryland was removed. Georgetown is considered to be part of Washington, DC.
