Wid Taylor was born in the mid 1800's, he died when he was about 25 years old. He was killed while returning home from a dance, his horse had apparently gotten spooked and had thrown him. Enough time had passed by the time they had found his body that they wrapped him in a wagon tarp and buried him on the exact spot that he died. He was a great uncle to Virgil Taylor. If you take highway 5 out of Benton to highway 9 and at Crows station heading north on 9 about 8 miles, take Unity Road on the left, which is straight across from highway 298, you stay on Unity Road and you will cross Lee's Creek, the grave is not very far on your right after you cross the creek, there use to be a large rock painted and the grave was located back up behind it. I plan to repaint the rock in the near future in case anyone wants to find it.
