The historical highway marker alongside Henry Markle’s property is not about Henry Markle. I had the marker placed for my dad, William Claude  Markle, who was a road contractor. A couple of Claude’s brothers did work on some of the roads he built including Henry. I placed the marker beside Uncle Henry’s property because it was safer there then down the road a piece where Claude lived. When we’re talking about building roads in Clay County we’re talking about William C. Markle.
