FLOYD, N.Y. ---The Daughters of the American Revolution put on a commemorative ceremony for two soldiers from the American Revolution that are buried in Floyd.
The Moulton Family Cemetery is located on Route 365 at what is now the Terra Dolce Farms Green House. The Cemetery has been there since the late 1800s. Colonel Stephen Moulton and his son Salmon Moulton both served under George Washington. They're both buried at the site in Floyd.
During the ceremony, the members of the DAR chapter unveiled a sign that marks the gravesites. Jeff Moulton, Salmon Moulton's great great great grandson was at the ceremony and was moved by what the DAR chapter had done for his family.
"It is very overwhelming for me to be here to represent my father my uncle and my aunts. And it's very overwhelming for me to be here," said Moulton.
The DAR chapter had been working on this project for about a year. Beverly Seifried, a member of the DAR said it took a lot of hard work to restore the gravesite to what it is today.
It has been a long road since a year ago last summer and we're still not quite finished. We're still working on it and the sun has come out and I see it's going to be a sunshiny day," said Seifried.
Floyd Town Supervisor Willard Strieff was at the ceremony and spoke of a plan to refurbish the gravesite.
"We have plans following up later this summer. We're going to come in here and establish bases for the foundation of these monuments and try and put them back up and in order," said Seifried.
The chapter is working with the State DOT on the permanent spot of the gravesite sign.
