The Colonel William Prescott Chapter of the DAR, an organization that was formed to honor the men and women who fought or aided the fight for freedom from England and helped establish America, joined together at the Lyons Rural Cemetery to honor Nicholas Feller, Benjamin Avery, and Beriah Foote, all Revolutionary War Soldiers who rest in the cemetery.
There are around 230 Revolutionary War Soldiers buried in Wayne County and if someone is a descendent they can let the DAR know if they would like their relative celebrated.
The NSDAR is open to all women, ages 18 and older, who have a direct line to a Patriot who served in the American Revolution. Genealogists are available to help those seeking membership with their applications.
