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.

prospecting up the Miami Valley in 1797 he moved his family to Silver Creek where 
he finally (about 1799) located 1440 acres of land, paying for it in military bounty 
land warrants for his Revolutionary services. He came fr a family of Baptists and 
was the first person baptized in Silver Creek. Here he built his cabin and reared 
his family of six children. The creek was renamed "Hole's Creek" and retains 
the name at this time. His long army service indicates that he was the peer of his 
contemporaries in the medical profession. Traditions of the neighborhood testify 
that his pretentious log cabin was long the center of pioneer hospitality and culture. 
He was the first physician in the locality, and although his practice extended over 
many miles of territory he found time to build and run two mills south of Dayton. 
He received his literary and medical training in Germany where he was sent in 
1766. Socially he entertained Washington, Jefferson, and the best, socially, in the 
Revolutionary times in his NJ home. It was at tlie suggestion of Dr. Hole that 
this county was named "Montgomery" for Gen Richard Montgomery, who fell

July 4, 1922. Forty-five vears of age Col McCune moved to Ohio, and he was one of 
those early pioneers who opened the wilderness, and made a home and "local 
habitation" for generations to come. He was one of Nature's nobility ; ever kind- 
hearted as a parent, the friend of man, and an uncompromising Democrat. He rep- 
resented the people of Jefferson Co for some yrs in the legislature of the state, he 
was a leading member of the Presbyterian church and fulfilled his duties in life as a 
Christian and patriot. He died full of yrs, and was bur with the honors of war. 
Peace to the ashes of the veteran citizen, and patriotic soldier of the Revolution. 
A large circle of relatives and friends mourn his loss; let them cherish his manifold 
virtues, and may we all, when overtaken by death, be found as innocent and free fr 
faults, as the honest old warrior who fought for human rights and the blessings 
of liberty. Fur infor Steubenville Chap.
