He told a story about his grandfather taking him "up the road a bit and over toward Clear Pond." They stopped near a large boulder and his grandfather Samuel Johnson told him that a relative was buried there with no marker of any kind. He believed it probably was the grave of his great grandfather Lyman Johnson who died Nov. 10, 1873 at Blue Ridge which was the nearest post office to Clear Pond.)
