Daughters of American Revolution to dedicate marker for 18 veterans interred at Washington Township cemetery

Doug Ross of Bell Township and Linda Gearhard Chicka of Saltsburg worked with chapters of the Daughters of the American Revolution in New Kensington and Omaha, Neb., to get new headstones for two Revolutionary War soldiers buried there. Church officials and the DAR will dedicate a marker Oct. 29 to 18 Revolutionary War veterans interred at Poke Run Presbyterian Church’s cemetery.

In September 2021, members of Poke Run Presbyterian Church in Washington Township installed two new headstones to replace worn away markers in the church cemetery for two Revolutionary War soldiers, Isaac Sadler and John McConnell.
