Members of the Drum Hill chapter of the DAR (National Society Daughters of the American Revolution) and the Captain David Hawley C.A.R. (Children of the American Revolution) gathered to help clean up Comstock Cemetery on Veterans Day. Comstock Cemetery is the third-oldest cemetery in Wilton and the burial ground of seven Revolutionary War veterans and approximately 200 others. The cemetery was in active use from 1781 to 1850.
The Drum Hill chapter has been working on restoring the half-acre cemetery on Ridgefield Road in Wilton for several years. Members cleaned up the cemetery this past spring and hundreds of daffodils, planted by chapter members, bloomed. However, many old gravestones desperately need repair.
