William Horrall Grave Marking

 

The Fairfax Resolves Chapter place bronze SAR markers at the grave of Pvt. William Horrall, an soldier in the American Revolution, on May 29, 2008.

 

Pvt. Horrall is buried at Old Bethel Cemetery in Washington Twp., Daviess Co., Indiana. He served in the Revolution as a private from Amherst Co., VA, serving 6 tours of duty, and was among those who served in McIntosh’s Ohio Valley Expedition in 1777-1778. He helped build Ft. Laurens in Ohio during that tour of duty. He volunteered in early 1781 when Phillips and Arnold invaded Virginia and later in 1781 for the Siege of York. In his pension application he said that he was present at the surrender of Cornwallis. In addition to serving in the militia, he signed a petition from the residents of Amherst Co. calling from the protection of religious freedom. William Horrall removed to South Carolina after the Revolution and then moved to Daviess Co. about 1809. He died on 15 Feb. 1842.

 

William Horrall is the ancestor of two members of the Fairfax Resolves Chapter, Douglas LeMasters and John Sinks. The ceremony was scheduled as an event at the Horrall Family Reunion where eighteen direct descendants were present for the ceremony.
