Sometime after the close of the Civil War, Samuel Williamson decided to move his family west. When he arrived in Rapides Parish, Louisiana, his wife was very ill. Her condition was so bad that it became impossible to travel any farther. Not knowing anyone in the area, Samuel left Ann in the wagon with the older children while he went back along the trail they had just covered in search of a neighbor to help. When he finally found help, it was too late; Ann's condition had worsened and shortly thereafter she died. Samuel did not have money to buy her a marker for her headstone, so he rolled a large boulder to place at the head of her grave. To this day, that boulder remains, but the rains of time have eroded it until now it is only a small rock. After Ann's death, Samuel did not have the heart to travel further.
