Long Description:
Seaberry Arms Osborne

Nearby is the grave of Seaberry Osborne (circa, 1815~66), daughter of Chief Running Bear. She married Solomon Osborne in Cherokee, N.C. and in 1838 fled to escape "Trail of Tears." The Native American pioneers found sanctuary in the mountains and land in Nicholas and Clay counties. Prior to her death, she instructed Solomon to bury her along Twenty Mile Creek and keep the grave site secret forever.
