Dearborn County Roll of Honor.
Among the pioneers who settled in this county, were a number who had served their country during the revolutionary war. The following list may not be complete but contains all known to the writer. If there are others, it is to be hoped that the fact will be reported, and it should be the first duty of the Vice Presidents of the Historical Society to ascertain if the omission is in their township. A full and perfect list of those entitled to enrollment on Dearborn County’s First Roll of Honor should be written on the first pages of its history, and that this may be done correctly, information is requested of the citizens of the county.
The following revolutionary sires were connected with the early settlement of Dearborn county, and “their remains sleep on our hills and are entombed in our valleys.” Let us perpetuate their names and keep alive the remembrance of their valuable services.
