From the writings of a local historian, musician, teacher and descendant of Josiah Marcum, the late Jessie Baker, we find a world of information concerning Josiah Marcum. The weathered gravestone which stands about a mile-and-a-half from the mouth of Jennie's Creek as one turns at the bridge from U. S. Route 52 South East of Crum, WV, reads as follows:





This solitary grave is located in a bottom near Jennie's Creek surrounded by quiet hills. It is one of the few marked Revolutionary War Soldier's graves in the Tug Valley.
