      In 1982 this grave is located on Finis Berkley farm near Laura Furnace.

      Trigg County, Kentucky Laura Furnace was built in 1855 some two miles west of Cumberland River by Gentry, Gunn & Co., of Tennessee, who invested in it a capital of about $40,000. They gave employment to 120 or 180 men, and carried on a very successful business for three years. The furnace was then purchased by George P. Wilcox, who operated it until 1860-61. The civil war seriously interfered with the iron interests of this region, and for several years Laura Furnace remained idle, to the great loss of the proprietors, who were thus financially ruined. It has been operated only at intervals since 1865. Pringle & Co., of Pittsburgh, had charge of it in 1871, and Whitlock, McNichola & Co. leased it for a short time a year or two later, but did not make the business lucrative. The property is now owned by C. Beninger, of Pittsburgh, but is not in operation.

      Laura Furnace

      Laura Furnace was the last furnace to be built in Land Between the Lakes in 1855, located 3 miles north of the Tennessee state line. The inside of the bosh was 40 feet tall. Operated by Gentry, Gunn and Company and managed by J. F. Gentry, Laura employed 130 workers. The furnace was forced to close during the Civil War and after the war was intermittently in operation until finally closing in 1872. Today a Kentucky historical marker identifies the site.
