Thursday, May 17, at 7:00 p.m. at Silverbrook Cemetery.
Friends of Silverbrook and Rebecca Dewey Chapter DAR will have a short program and ceremony to dedicate the new gravemarker for one of our War of 1812 veterans.
Hiram Chilson, 1797-1889, was also the son of the Revolutionary War soldier buried at Silverbrook, Ezra Chilson, and was one of Niles' earliest settlers. His grave had remained unmarked until this year when we were able to obtain a veteran's gravemarker from the Veteran's Administration.
We will meet at the main gate at 7:00 p.m. and proceed to the gravesite from there!
