This committee is constantly attempting to increase our knowledge regarding patriots buried within the four counties which make up the Philadelphia Continental Chapter SAR.

Grave Registration & Flagging

Several years ago, the Chapter launched a project to identify all the graves of Revolutionary War soldiers and other supporters who rendered public or civil service to the Cause in the huge chapter area.  In addition to recording the graves and noting their location, the project entailed capturing all the information in a computer file.  In addition, the chapter around each Memorial Day marks graves of Revolutionary War soldiers and patriots with 13-star "Betsy Ross" flags.  The chapter marks over 1,700 graves with flags in over 160 graveyards from Philadelphia to Oxford to Sellersville. The search effort continues unabated.  This is an activity that benefits from wide member support.  The organization of the effort has been steadily developed and improved to facilitate the task of finding and marking burial sites easier.  The program information is shared with local historical societies and veterans groups.
