PREFACE:

     IN 1899 the New Connecticut Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, appointed a committee to locate the burial places of the Revolutionary Soldiers of Lake County, and to prepare a brief personal and military history of each.
     At that time the number of known Revolutionary Soldiers buried in the County did not, perhaps, exceed ten or fifteen, and people best informed on the subject predicted that the most thorough search would not be able to more than double the number.
     No sooner had the work commenced than the Committee began to realize the extent and difficulty of their undertaking.  The length of time which had elapsed; the apathy of living descendants and relatives, when such could be found; the absence of grave-stones, and the loss of authentic records, were among the first obstacles to be met and overcome.
     A thorough inspection of all burying-grounds, both private and public, was undertaken; local histories and town, county and church records were carefully studies; newspaper files running back three-quarters of a century were closely scanned,, and in all cases the history of those whose age assured the possibility of their having been participants in our great war of independence, was untiringly sought out and brought to proof.
     Much assistance was secured from secretaries-of-state of Mass. and Conn. and from the National D. A. R.  The U. S. pension records, also, were indispensable.
     All these sources of information, as well as others not enumerated, were constantly drained, while a persistent correspondence was directed toward officials of high and low degree, towards friends, relatives and neighbors, for proof of elusive facts and traditional statements.  And now, after three years of searching and compiling we bring our labor to a close.
     Should this little volume encourage other localities to undertake to wrest from oblivion and perpetuate the names and memories of those brave spirits who fought and suffered to found an independent nation, we shall feel that our long labor has been abundantly rewarded.

                                                                                                                      Chairman of Committee
    Painesville, Ohio, December, 1902
