One of our ongoing projects is to honor those

On October 26, 2013, we placed
a marker on the gravestone of Joshua Griffeth in the Old Revolutionary
Burying Grounds in Patterson, Putnam County, NY.
2004 the Chapter was proud to place a marker on the Memorial to Enoch
Crosby. The original gravestone was destroyed by people hacking bits of
the stone off as souvenirs. Ferdinand Hopkins, a grand nephew, had this
monument made and placed at the grave of Enoch Crosby in 1914. A DAR
grave marker was placed at the grave by the Enoch Crosby Chapter on May 2,
2004, at the Gilead Burying Ground, Carmel, New York
