Many of our ancestors were called to serve their fellow man in some capacity. Some were called to serve in the defense of our nation, others in defense of what they believed. Some sacrificed with their life, others their fortunes. Some were called to public office and serve their countrymen, while others were called by God to save their fellowman. The common thread among them all was their willingness to serve and sacrifce. Below are our direct line ancestors who answered the call to service. This page is a tribute to them.
