These are all markers that I was able to locate by descriptions and documentation online. Most of them are verified at least via Google Street View. I also added markers that got mentioned somewhere on the internet or in publications, but that are unverified. And I added locations where the markers got removed. This is just to have them on record. Please tell me about your findings and correct me if I am wrong somewhere.

Many markers were relocated due to highway expansion. Sometimes by local churches or individuals. Some of them ended up on private property, out of sight of the public. Around Middlesboro, KY, Mayes’ remaining markers were donated to the Museum of Appalachia, and some were planted in new places. All thanks to the initiative of Catherine and Clyde Mayes who documented everything around Mayes work in the late nineties.

Thanks to Martha Carver who provided photos and locations from her own research. And thanks to everyone who wrote about the marker online and posted photos. If I used your work and didn’t credit you, email me!
