Where Is This Enos and Elizabeth Mercer Matson Memorial Rock?

Surnames: Matson, Mercer, Dawson, Shugart
I don't think I've ever posted to this board, but I do have ancestors who were early Bureau County settlers. I found the attached unmarked photo in a box of photos belonging to my mother, who worked on genealogy all her life. The bronze marker is hard to read but it says: Enos and Elizabeth Mercer Matson who came here in 1836, Peter and Jane Dawson Matson, who came here in 1848." The 1848 part is hard to read and may not be correct. The color in the photo is washed out. Does anyone know the location of this boulder? And does anyone have a good source for Matson information? The Matson who links to my family is Cora Matson, daughter of Enos M. Matson and Helen Westbrook; Enos M. Matson was a son of Peter Matson and Jane Dawson. Cora married Judson Shugart. But my current family tree on Rootsweb doesn't say all of that, and some of what's out there online conflicts too.
