Montgomery County, MD Patriot Grave Registry

Welcome to the General William Smallwood Chapter's grave registry of Revolutionary War Patriots. The registry identifies 295 Patriots documented in NSSAR and NSDAR national records as being buried in, or having died while residing in, Montgomery County, MD. This registry is intended to serve as a resource and reference tool for Revolutionary War researchers and Patriot descendants. The registry is a work in progress. Current activities are focused on identifying Patriot burial locations and recording the GPS coordinates of the gravesites. We welcome corrections and additional information offered by the public and Patriot descendants regarding any Patriot listed in the registry. To make an inquiry or to provide input to the registry please send an e-mail to the Grave Registry Administrator.

Researchers, Patriot descendants, and other interested parties may use the registry information for academic and genealogical purposes without restriction and without written permission as long as the Gen. William Smallwood Chapter MDSSAR is cited as the source. Entities wishing to use the registry information for any other purpose, including commercial publication, must obtain written permission from the Gen. William Smallwood Chapter.

Users are cautioned that Patriot Record pages in this registry cannot be used as proof documents for membership in this Society even though they employ bonafide sources in their composition. It is suggested that prospective members, and current members researching additional Patriots, consult the NSSAR Application Preparation Manual and the section on acceptable documentation as a guide to the proof requirements. The sources cited on the Patriot Records are diverse and may be limited in their use as documentation (i.e., Find A Grave photos of head/foot stones may be accepted, but any contributor-supplied text about dates, relatives, or the deceased is not acceptable proof).

The Patriots are listed below in alphabetical order. Click on a selected Patriot name to display the complete Patriot record. The data fields in each record contain codes that explain the source of the data. These Source Information Codes shown in parentheses in each record are explained as follows. The codes are associated with the field data preceding the codes in the Patriot records.

(N) See Notes section of record for additional information about this field.

The "Residency" location names under "Support for American Revolution" which contain the "MC” suffix refer to the sections of Montgomery County as depicted on the "Hundreds of Montgomery County Circa 1777" map shown in the preface to the Peden book. The record field "Marked" contains information about the placement of SAR and DAR markers at the Patriot gravesites.

The location of Patriot graves is depicted by Global Positioning System (GPS) latitude and longitude readings shown in the record field, "Headstone GPS Coordinates." Although these readings are taken at the exact location of the grave sites, their accuracy is variable and not every set of coordinates will result in subsequent positioning precisely at the targeted grave site. However, most readings should be accurate to within several feet of the grave. To view an actual overhead image of a gravesite, click on the GPS coordinates, click on "Satellite," and then zoom in to the full extent.

A list of Montgomery County cemeteries containing Patriot graves may be found in the accompanying Patriot Cemetery Inventory, which also identifies Patriot graves which have been formally marked by the SAR and DAR.
