Sons of the American Revolution Ceremony at Mars Hill Church (William Daniell, John Stroud and Stephen Crow) on Sat. 3.24.07
By Wendell Dawson, Editor, AVOC, Inc
Sons of the American Revolution will be in Oconee County on Saturday, March 24, 2007, for a ceremony at Mars Hill Church recognizing Revolutionary Soldiers, William Daniell,
John Stroud and Stephen Crow. There are 1000's of descendants of these three Oconee Soldiers. My own ancestry includes William Daniell.
I have never attended such an event and plan to be there.I know of Daniell "Cousins" coming from South Carolina, Louisiana, Atlanta area and parts unknown.It should be an impressive event.
Persons interested in history (local and national) should attend the event.
