Boerne DAR, SAR travel to Kentucky for patriot’s grave-marking ceremony

Revolutionary War patriot Cpl. Augustine Lawless was honored at a recent grave-marking ceremony by the George W. Kendall Chapter of Boerne, Texas, and the Jane Lampton Chapter of Jamestown, Kentucky, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR).

The May 18 ceremony celebrated the placement of the 2-foot by 2-foot grave marker for Cpl. Lawless and his wife, Sarah Dillon Lawless, in Jamestown, Kentucky. This marked the culmination of 50 years of research to locate the grave site.

Karen Gibson, a descendant and member of Boerne’s George W. Kendall chapter, developed the plan for the DAR chapters in both states to collaborate and host a memorable ceremony to honor this Revolutionary patriot.
