FOREWORD



The records contained in this Roster were presented by the Daughters of the
American Revolution to the State of Ohio as a tribute of respect to the hardy
pioneers who transplanted to this State the noble ideals for which they fought from
1775 to 1783, and who now sleep the last sleep beneath its soil.

The 87th General Assembly of Ohio accepted the gift of these records from the
Daughters of the American Revolution and provided an appropriation for their
publication as a part of the Military records of the State. The Roster is not designed
as a genealogical reference book, although it may be of service in tracing pioneer
ancestry. Its primary object is to present an authetic and complete list of Revolu-
tionary soldiers buried in this State. Research has extended over a quarter of a
century, and had it not been for the patriotic service given gratis by Ohio men and
women the compilation of these records would not have been possible. No detail was
too insignificant for these searchers; county cemeteries were investigated by faithful
Chapter chairmen of the D. A. R. ; newspapers gave freely of their space ; the U. S.
Bureau of Pensions gave valuable aid and many persons were assiduous in searching
the D. A. R. lineage books and the published lists of the Sons of the American Revo-
lution.

Contained herein are many records of proven service, but there are some which
may never be proved though the service given by the individuals is beyond question.
Information in many instances was meager, but this, it is felt, can l)e corrected by
adding to the Roster additional records which are now or will be in the future under
investigation. The chapter or person who filed the data is responsible for the au-
thenticit}' of the record and any communication should be carried on with them.
Filing of the records was begun by Mrs. Eugene Kennedy, Dayton, Ohio, during her
term as State Chairman of Historical Sites and Revolutionary Graves, 1920 to 1923,
and the Roster was compiled by the present State Chairman who submits the work
in answer to the toast of Davidi Morris, Revolutionary soldier, who pleaded at a
patriotic meeting held at Troy, Ohio, July 4, 1827 —

"May the precious blood that was spilt between the
years '75 and '83 as a sacrifice for our liberty and
independence be ever commenorated."

Lest the reader should wonder at the large number of Revolutionary soldiers
buried in Ohio, it should be recalled that the present boundaries of Ohio were nearest
the original colonies, and when land grants were given to the soldiers thither came
the hardy New Englanders to the Western Reserve and the region of Lake Erie ;
sturdy Pennsylvanians crossed over into central Ohio and the Virginian and Carolinian
took up his abode in the southern part of Ohio. Here in the Northwest Territory
they lived and died; they were fathers of a race who inherited the invincible courage
and sterling qualities of the Revolutionary soldier and who took up the burden of
founding the Nation by pressing westward.

JANE FRANCES DOWD DAILEY, Albany, Ohio.
State Chairman of Historic Sites and Revolutionary
Graves, D. A. R., 1923-29.
