Great-great-grandfather news

My great-great-grandfather got a new grave marker: http://www.bdtonline.com/local/local_story_199201619.html . If I count the generations right, he was my grandmother Lucy Evans grandfather. He was born about the same time as the adoption of the Constitution, so in a sense he dates to the birth of the USA as we know it today. He lived from a decade after the Revolution to after the Civil War and served in the War of 1812.
