Revolutionary Soldier.
Canton Advance Tells of The Grave of One in Cherokee.

Over about Mt. Zion church, two miles east of Waleska in this county, there is thought to be the grave of a revolutionary soldier, and the Daughters of the Revolution, through Mrs. R. E. Park, Atlanta, are anxious to learn the facts concerning the same.  Jno. G. Heard, Esq., who formerly lived near there, remembers having heard something about it when a boy, and is of the opinion the soldier’s name was Brannon, Branham or something like that.

The United States government has a fund used to place markers to graves of Revolutionary soldiers, and any information concerning the above grave, or the grave of any other Revolutionary soldier will be gladly received by Mrs. Park in behalf of the Daughters of the Revolution.

Can not Lewis A. Carpenter, William Taylor, Worley, the Cornelisons, Carneys, Heards, McCoys, or other old citizens give some information?  The advance will publish any letters written along that line and do all possible to aid in locating the grave of Revolutionary soldier or in obtaining other information concerning Revolutionary times and early history of this section.  –Canton Advance.
