Some members of the Ohio Genealogical Society are fanning across the state to document the graves of all Revolutionary War veterans in their counties.
The goal is to put together an accurate account of the men who helped create the United States, said Kelly Coghan Holderbaum, president of the group's Summit County chapter. About a dozen volunteers from her group are walking county cemeteries this summer.
On a recent visit to Tallmadge Cemetery, the group -- using genealogical information and government records -- found the graves of nine veterans. On most of the graves, there was no mention that the men were veterans of the American Revolution.
