We have at least one Revolutionary War vet buried near here, which is remarkable when you think that this part of Wisconsin was not settled until 1830-1840.
Nice story. Thanks for posting.
I know someone in the SAR who says his Revolutionary War ancestor was the last surviving veteran of the war--I need to tell him about John Gray and see if his ancestor died after March 29, 1868.
John Gray outlived 13 of the first 16 Presidents, including 5 who were born after Cornwallis surrendered at Yorktown.
