By Margaret Taylor

Patriot William Hurt's Grave Marking and Dedication Ceremony was held today, Saturday, October 6, 2006, at the Hurt Cemetery on Highway 704 South of Columbia.

It was presented by the Governor Isaac Shelby Chapter, Kentucky Society Sons of the American Revolution.


Mr. Hurt was born September 16, 1757 and died November 12, 1842. He served in the Revolutionary War and crossed the Delaware River with George Washington.

In attendance were the Color Guard, Rev. Forrest B. Chilton, President/Chaplain of Governor Isaac Shelby Chapter, KYSSAR and several decendants, as well as spectators in attendance.
Author's note: I was not able to get all the names to go with the pictures, but the ceremony was so beautiful I wanted to share them. If you can help with the names, send them to columbiamagazine.com at ed@columbiamagazine.com or to me, Margaret Taylor.
