Private, Berks Co PA Militia
15 Mar 1750 - 10 Aug 1828
Row 13 Grave Marker 22
Buried at
Huff's Church Cemetery
Village of Huff's Church, Berks County, PA.
Grave was re-registered by me in 2007 with the
Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) Society
in a new database started by the SAR.
When I revisited the grave in Aug 2012
with a friend from Germany we saw that
a new SAR round Rev War grave marker
is now next to the tombstone.
