"A confederate soldier had been hidden and nursed on the property now (1981) owned by Mrs. Ralph Geddes, back a farm lane opposite Long Lane and Route 16. The present owner has been told that the soldier died and is buried a few feet from the door of one of the homes at the end of this lane. He is said to have left a Bible and a locket. The relatives of the soldier were notified of his death, but nothing more is known."
