Trigg Compatriots Attend Ohio County Grave Markings

Three compatriots from the Col. Stephen Trigg Chapter attended a multiple grave marking ceremony in rural Ohio County, Kentucky, this afternoon.  Participants marked the graves of John Bennett, Chesley Calloway, and Joshua Chapman.  Bennett’s grave was in the actual cemetery where the ceremony was held.  Calloway and Chapman are buried in family plots on nearby farms.

Representatives of the Col. Stephen Trigg Chapter were chapter President Geoff Baggett, chapter Vice-President Steve Mallory, and Compatriot Jerry Burlingame.  All three served in the color guard.  Steve fired his Pennsylvania rifle in the rifle salute.  Geoff and Jerry presented the chapter flag during the floral salute.
