Marx aka Marks Fair is a veteran of the Revolutionary War. He served in Capt. David Morgan's Company, Berks County Malitia. He was married to Catherine Moyer and had seven children. Six boys and one girl. Three of his sons were veterans of the War of 1812. My third great grandfather, Daniel, was one of those sons.

In 2009, I became a member of the Sons of the American Revolution to honor my 4th great grandfather. Many years were spent locating the necessary records and documents needed to join the S.A.R.

It's the Soldier who has given us the freedom of the press... It's the Soldier, who has given us the freedom of speech... It's the Soldier that ensures our right to Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Happiness... It's the Soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag & whose coffin is draped by the flag.

* IN MEMORY OF OUR VETERANS * ~+++ Eternal rest grant unto them, Oh Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. +++~ Amen.

A VETERAN - whether active duty, discharged, retired, reserve or passed away - is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to The United States of America, for an amount of up to, and including their life. Thank You for your Service to our Country. May God Bless You.

I am bound to them, though I cannot see their eyes or hear their voices. I honor their history. I cherish their lives. I will tell their story. I will remember them.

We come through you and must not forget you. You lived - felt the sun and the wind and had life and we are of you, as our children and our children's children will be of us.
