Could get there...
Thanks for this...nice marker..most impressive. I will eventually make it there and to the site of the original grave on Pryor Creek.
I read an article from 1934 that stated the remains of Pryor's cabin were still in existence. Looking at google earth and old topo maps, and based on my recollections, I believe his cabin and original gravesite were about here:
Enter from State Highway 69A on the dirt road that runs north along the railroad. Go about 1/2 mile north (you'll have to go through a low water crossing of Pryor Creek), then turn east for 1/4 mile or so. It's on USCOE land so access shouldn't be a problem.
