This is the marker for Big Bend Tunnel.
Located on Rt3/12 west of Talcott.
The marker is next to the John Henry Statue.
Big Bend Tunnel is in Talcott. I'm thinking the
statue of John Henry would be on the mountian
above the tunnel. It's been several years since these
photos were taken (old family photos).

On the Hinton marker, settlements are mentioned, one for Robert Lilly.
This is the marker or monument near the Blueston Park for Robert and Fanny Lilly. I recall my grandmother speaking of Lillytown (She was the granddaughter of "Groundhog Bill" Lilly).

Civil War Camp, Forest Hill United Methodist Church



From the South



From the North



Where the "Good Colonel Hayes" and "Bvt. Major William McKinley" spent some quality time.

The front of the church



And a view of as much as I could get of the cemetery in the rear.



Very nicely kept grounds.

Red Sulphur Springs, Red Sulphur Springs



Someone has taken some care around this one.

From the South



From the North



The resort was closed in 1917. The waters of Indian Creek run about 1/4 of a mile away.

At this marker, we met these two gentlemen.



They are on a vacation touring Monroe County. Their intentions are to head to Greenville for the dedication of a family marker. We should get to that in a moment.

There are only two markers in the Delilah Chapel graveyard, located at the Delilah, United Methodist Church in Oceana. The second is for William Cook Sr. The minister of the church told me there was suppose to be a woman and child buried there also. He thought they were the wife and child of John.
