 On a steep slope, north of the Faucett Tavern site, is a lone grave, marked by a heavy stone slab, with crudely cut inscription, which marks the grave of Michael Miller's wife. He once owned the land and taught a school here in 1823. Later George Faucett came from North Carolina, acquired the land and maintained a tavern where the stage coach horses were changed, this being an old spur of the New Albany-Vincennes stage road. Inscription is viz: Here lays the body of Sary Miller. Departed this life on Thursday, August 10 in the fort-first year of her age. Died 1826.. 40 y and 5d.
