REVOLUTIONARY SOLDIERS BURIED
IN WAYNE COUNTY, OH
 
In the summer of 1999, our chapter visited the resting places of Wayne County Patriots of the American Revolution. Our chapter's records indicate that this was last done about 50 years ago. Some of the stones no longer exist, many are no longer readable. DAR markers placed many years ago are also gone. Below is a listing of the graves we have identified. The list comes from various sources--Chapter records, Court House records, etc. We have included the notes done 50 years ago as well as updates from 1999.
 
We have noted the ancestors shown in the 1990 DAR Patriot Index. When included in our chapter records, we have included the proof of service needed for DAR membership. We have no other information on these patriots beyond what is shown.
