NOTE The grave of Rachel Clark in the Kenny Cemetery, Wea Township, deserves special mention because of her act of kindness. When the great wreck occurred at Culver Station in 1864 in which so many soldiers were hurt, it was sought to have them cared for near to the scene of the accident. The Vickery family who lived close to the railroad and only a short distance from the scene were known to be Copperheads (Southern sympathizers) and refused to take any of the men into their home. Rachel Clark however took in a soldier who had been desperately inured though she had a houseful of her own family. By careful nursing and patient waiting upon him he finally recovered. He wished to repay her for her kindness in some way but she would take nothing. Year's afterward he returned and urged her to take pay for the care and trouble he had caused her but she was still firm and would take nothing for saving his life.
This is a recollection of W. C. McCollough who lived as a boy in the same neighborhood. When she died the soldier paid for the tombstone for her grave.
