Pike County, Kentucky War Heros

compiled by Teresa Martin Klaiber 2010

Memorial weekend 2010 is now a memory and I am back at my desk with another tidbit.

The National Daughters of the American Revolution do remarkable tributes and is a society I have always held dear to my heart for all the things they do beyond being a lineage society.

May 30, 1929, The DAR dedicated a bronze tablet containing the names of sixteen Revolutionary soldiers at Pikeville in the public square. Both the National Guard and American Legion assisted the ladies at the unveiling. School children sang America the Beautiful and the address was given by A. F. Childress of the Sons of the American Revolution.

The 16 names inscribed on the tablet were:

John May
[ From NC died 1813]

Moses Stepp
[ From VA died Floyd County, KY 1856]

Joseph Ford
