On September 18, 1892, long after Dogtown had ceased to exist as a community, James Merry died in Dogtown. He had a 3-year-old bull that he had previously successfully wrestled to the ground on a few occasions. He decided to try it again. This time the bull was having no part of it. The first marker shows where James Merry was first attacked by his bull. The second marker, a short distance away heading toward Dogtown Road, is where James Merry died of his injuries.
