RE: Revolutionary War?
My sister, Kay Marx is hiring a researcher from the Perry Historians to try to find out more about the monuments at Poplar Hill and Bloomfield Union Cemeteries. We'll let you know if we find something that tells where they got the list of names.

RE: Revolutionary War?
Francis McCowen's son, Finlaw, married Sarah Darlington, the daughter of Meredith Darlington, who is also listed on the monument. Meredith is my 5th-great grandfather.
We have the same problem. The DAR says they have no record of Meredith in the Revolution. I spoke on the phone with Harry Lenig of the Perry Historians, and asked him who erected the monument, and where did they get the list of names. He said he thought the monument dates to the 1930's, but didn't know where the names came from. Maybe we could get someone from the Historians to research that.
My sister qualified with Casper Lupfer, Christopher Bower and Michael Loy, but we would like to add Meredith Darlington and David McClure.
The DAR's records are not totally complete, and contain a lot of errors, which they are reluctant to correct.
