French and Indian Cemetery

Among the graves at the Old Cathedral “French and Indian” Cemetery in Vincennes, Indiana are soldiers and patriots of the American Revolution who helped General George Rogers Clark to capture Fort Sackville in 1779. On the grounds stood a log church where the people of Vincennes swore an oath of allegience to the Republic of Virginia and the United States on 20 July 1778.

    Does anyone have any information on The Boston Patriot Cemetary and as to how I can find someone from the American Revolution that may be buried there?

    Am I duplicating this? Does anyone have any information on The Boston Patriot Cemetary and how I may find someone who may be buried there (during the time of the American Revolution?)
