Last Wednesday, 7 October 2020, Mike and his bride, Carol Gunn visited the gravesite of 1st Lt. Joseph Catterline of the New Jersey Continental Line. Lt. Catterline died in 1822 and has lain at rest in the Miami Chapel Cemetery these many years.
Compatriot Chuck Rogers brought the grave location to Mike’s attention a year or so ago and planning for the formal event began. The formal Grave Marking Ceremony will be held in early November by the Chapter with military honors provided by the Nolan Carson Memorial Color Guard.
One of the many steps in preparing for a grave marking ceremony is placement of the SAR Patriot granite marker. This is a task usually undertaken by members of the Revolutionary War Site and Patriot Graves Committee, of which Mike is the Committee Chairman.
