Missing Signs Confirmation

I received a note from Mr. Geiger at the WV Archives and History office. (Below, in yellow)

(I believe I can verify the following are missing after my ride out to Grafton a few weeks ago: Pruntytown, Flemington, and John Barton Payne in Taylor Co. Randolph Mason is missing in Harrison Co. Also, I don't recall a marker for Smoke Hole Cave, but it's been awhile since I've been by there.) If anyone can chime in, please help. Thanks!!

Mr. Elyard: We are preparing to order some replacement markers and wish to confirm they are missing. Would it be possible to post and see if we can get confirmation of their non-existence? We appreciate your assistance.
