Holson Cemetery, Richland Township

Perry Swindell was a native of North Carolina and served in the Revolutionary War in the military forces from that state. He is recorded in Margaret Water's DAR Supplement, and she mentions a possible connection to Willis Swindell, another Revolutionary War veteran buried in Madison County. Perry lived near the Richland/Monroe Township border and may have had the nickname of "Parky." He is buried in the family plot in the southwest corner of the Holson, probably near the grave of descendent John Swindell. As pictured at left, an American flag is placed on or near this relative's grave in honor of Perry.

Directions: Perry Swindell, who is in an unmarked grave, a general shot of the Holson Cemetery, rural MC. (We had to include this picture since the cemetery is just down the road from our house. Until we got involved in this project, we had no idea there was a RW veteran so close.)
