1. Capt. Michael Cresap Marker
Inscription. A Colonial and Revolutionary Hero of Ohio, Virginia, and Maryland, whose military services assisted in gaining the “Dunmore Treaty,” after the Battle of Point Pleasant, in which he fought in the Hampshire County, Virginia, regiment. Captain Michael Cresap was present here and a signer of the “Dunmore Treaty,” in October 1774.

Captain Michael Cresap's companions in arms, Ebenezer Zane, General George Rogers Clarke, Colonel Benjamin Wilson, Benjamin Tomlinson and others, corrected Logan's mistake in associating Captain Cresap with the Yellow Creek Affair.

Captain Michael Cresap took the first company from the South to General Washington at Cambridge. He died in the service and was buried with the “Honors of War,” and his tomb stands in Trinity Churchyard, New York City.
