We know of but one revolutionary soldier who is buried in Bartow county.  Major John Lewis who sleeps in the Baptist church yard, near Adairsville.  His tombstone bears the following inscription: “In memory of Major John Lewis, a soldier of the revolution, who departed this life November 4th, A. D. 1840, age eighty-three years, one month and fourteen days.

“How sleep the brave, who sink to rest
With all their country’s wishes blest”

If any one who knows of such graves elsewhere in the county will communicate with Miss Bell Bayless, Kingston, Ga., giving if possible the service of this soldier and the inscription on his gravestone, it will be greatly appreciated and of assistance to the Daughters of the American Revolution who wish to locate the resting places of these heroes.
