South of Princess Anne between the northbound Route 13 and Old Princess Anne Road

Directions: From the center of Princess Anne travel south turning off onto Old Princess Anne Road, cross
the railroad tracks, go south approximately 3-4 miles, passing Washington High School on the right.

the stones in disarray when transcribed in 1999.
