One of those recent talks was given by Swainsboro’s Compatriot Dess Smith, who attended the Brier Creek Chapter’s October monthly meeting at the American Legion in Sylvania and delivered to the other 11 attendees updates on the progress made by Brier Creek Revolutionary War Battlefield Association, Inc.
During that same meeting, Compatriot Hu Daughtry of the Mill Creek Chapter based out of Statesboro presented on his Revolutionary War descendants, the Pitts Family, outlining each generation until present day.
