This is a BRAND-NEW marker - not even on the state's database list online yet. I only knew about it from talking to the sign guy at the local DOH Sign Shop a couple of weeks ago.
Located on Rt 19 about 1 mile north of Shinnston in the community of Big Elm (Marker is across the highway from Big Elm Elementary School).
I came up empty on my search for more information about this old community. There is not much there any more - just an Elementary School and a few scattered homes. I'd like to see the old tree - sounds HUGE!
Please read both sides - different inscriptions.
