AN INDIAN GRAVE
Mr. J.M. Crow while traveling in the edge of Polk
County, on the Conasauga
River about 14 miles from here, came across an Indians grave upon which
was the following noticeable
inscription: SACRED to the memory of David and Deliah A. McNair- who departed
this life - the former Aug 15,1836 the latter Nov 31 1838. Their children being natives of the Cherokee nation,
and having to go with their people to the west, leave this monument not only to tell of their regards for their
parents, but to guard their ashes from unhallowed intrusion of the white man." The inscription appears on
the tombstone, which is inside of a large rock wall about seven feet high. There is part of the tribe that visits this
spot once a year to look after the grave and see that it is unmolested by the pale face.
