Report: I had haerd of this place from relatives that have visited there and seen pictures of relatives standing by the sigh. I didn't have a camera to take my picture with the sigh so I scratched my initials in the back thinking someday my children would visit there and see dad had been there. I don't know if there is an historical connection to out Isom family and this site, but I am looking into it and will pass on any information to anyone who is interested.
