This series of headstones and records of the Revolutionary War Veterans buried in Decatur County was started in July 1975, by Smith Monument Works as their project for the bicentennial.
The series would have been impossible wwithout the records kept by the Lone Tree Chapter, D.A.R.
We at Smith Mounment Works would like, once again, to express appreciation to the Lone Tree Chapter D.A.R. for their dedication to the presevation of the history of Decatur County.
We would also like to thank the Bicentennial Commission for preserving this series in booklet form.

After the sketch was drawn and the history printed, Tim Nobbe informed us that the gravesite was located on the Nobbe Farms and Mrs Elmer Nobbe accompanied us to the section of their farm where the veteran is buried. There we found the headstones of Hugh Montgomery, his son who was a vetran of the War of 1812 and a grandson a veteranof teh Civil War. Mr Montgomery's wife andmembers of the Robinson family also are buried there.
We are hoping that other residents of the county can help us locate other graves and headstones of Revolutionary War Veteransburied in Decatur County.
