DAR to find and mark patriot’s graves

The Caroline Close Stuart Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) are looking for Revolutionary War Patriot graves in the Warren County area. A part of the mission of the DAR is to find and mark the graves of the men and women who helped to found our country.

One hundred years ago the Missouri DAR surveyed the state and marked a number of these graves. Since that time many more Revolutionary War veterans have been documented throughout the country and the state. However, finding and marking their graves remains a major job for local chapters.

“We need the residents and landowners of Warren County to help us find Veterans of the American Revolution and their graves that may be located on their property,” Chapter Regent Karen Wisner said. “We want to make sure these men’s and women’s roles in our country are never forgotten. Marking their graves insures their final resting place is recognized and maintained.”

To provide information about graves or learn more about the DAR, contact Regent Karen Wisner at (636) 244-3461.
