Recently, a grave marking was held in Fayette County for the American Revolution Patriot James Waldrop. Waldrop was born in Virginia and served the colonies on the quest for independence from England. Waldrop and his family later removed to Georgia where he received land in the GA Land Lottery for his service to the young nation. Waldrop and his wife Mary are buried in the Bottoms Family Cemetery in Fayetteville.
Members of the James Waldrop Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution met to honor his service to our country and to place a DAR marker on his grave. Joining the James Waldrop Chapter were about 50 guests including descendants of James Waldrop, the General Daniel Newnan Chapter DAR, the Fayette Starr's Mill Chapter DAR, the Marquis de Lafayette Chapter SAR and representatives from the Georgia State Society CAR and the Georgia State Regent.
The James Waldrop Chapter DAR is chartered in Fayetteville.
