Fort GreeneVille DAR Holds Dedication at Old Castine Cemetery

Despite the blusterous weather on November 19th, the Fort GreeneVille Chapter DAR held a graveside dedication for American Revolutionary War Soldiers Samuel Satterley and David Harriman. Both soldiers are buried at the Old Castine Cemetery on St Rt 127. The stones for each soldier were in disrepair due to the years of weather. The new stones dedicated were provided by the US government. The DAR was able to prove both soldiers were federalized and received pensions. Regent Debbie Nisonger gave the invocation and Greenville VFW Post 7262 Mike Maloney spoke of their contribution to our Nation. Following the dedication, DAR members thanked the Butler Township Trustees for their assistance in making this dedication happen.
