SOLDIERS OF THE REVOLUTION
THE Sons of the Revolution of
Columbus, Ohio, have furnished the following list of
such soldiers, who lived in Fairfield County. We
have not attempted to verify the list, but take it for
granted that it is substantially correct. There
are other names that we believe properly belong to this
Rev. John Wiseman, buried at New Salem;
James Holmes, buried at Wells graveyard, Licking
Gen. James Wells buried at the Wells graveyard,
William McFarland, father of the late Walter
McFarland, buried at Wells graveyard.
The descendants of these men claim with confidence that
they were soldiers under Washington; but we have not the
data to verity it; also, Michael Rice, of Hocking
township. Emanuel Ruffner was a teamster in
the war of the revolution.
Dr. Robert Wilcox was a surgeon in the
Revolution; John and George Hill, both died in
Walnut township; Reev. Cradlebaugh of Rush Creek
THE FOLLOWING IS THE SONS OF THE
REVOLUTION OF COLUMBUS LIST.
