American Revolution patriots to be remembered


The Clifty Creek chapter of Sons of the American Revolution and the Indiana Society of SAR Graves Committee will hold a grave marking ceremony June 13 for the Revolutionary War patriots laid to rest in Vernon Cemetery in Vernon.

This patriotic ceremony will feature a musket salute and the unveiling and dedication of SAR markers in the pioneer section of the cemetery. The markers will honor patriots John Story and Jethro New, who served to protect our country during the Revolutionary War.

The public is invited to see this colorful and dignified tribute to two of America’s first veterans. The ceremony will begin at 2:30 p.m. and will be held rain or shine. 

Those planning to attend are asked to enter through the South Pike Street entrance into the cemetery. Social distancing guidelines as set forth by Gov. Eric. Holcomb and the Jennings County Health Department will be observed.

Sons of the American Revolution is a national patriotic, historical and educational society whose members are direct descendants of the patriots who earned our independence.
