Our Revolutionary War Patriots

The members of the Margaret Gale Thornton Chapter are working on a biography for each of their Patriot ancestors. To honor each Patriot’s service, a biography is presented each month at our chapter meeting in recognition of each Patriot’s Revolutionary War service.  Biographies are posted after being presented at our chapter meeting.
