rev-plaq.jpg[Editors' sarcastic note: It is unfortunate that in the oldest county in West Virginia there is no chapter of a colonial wars society or veterans organization that has an interest in cataloging Revolutionary War veterans and locating and marking the graves of Revolutionary War soldiers. We appreciate the few families that have undertaken to honor their ancestors who served. If any one or any organization is interested in this project please contact the webmaster:   nrmsaadk@historichampshire.org]
