Mary Dickinson Arbuckle's grave honored by DAR

"DAR To Honor Grave of Soldier's Daughter", From the Anderson, Indiana Herald, June 8, 1953. They placed a Revolutionary War medallion next to her grave

Mary (Polly) Dickinson Arbuckle (my great*4 grandmother) was the only known daughter of a Revolutionary War Veteran to be buried in Madison County, Indiana (in 1847).  She was born in 1784 at Fort Randolph, Virginia (at Point Pleasant, now in West Virginia), to William Arbuckle Nelson and Catherine Madison Ironially, William Arbuckle's Revolutionary War pension application was rejected because there was no record that he had ever been enrolled in the Virginia militia.  However, I do believe his assertion that he served as a "volunteer soldier" at the Battle of Point Pleasant, and in other battles. He is reported to have been involved in General William Rogers Clark campaign into the "Norwest Territories", but I'm not sure.  Many anecdotal reports confuse his with his older brother Matthew, who was a prominent Virginia Militia officer.
