1. John McCabe Marker
Inscription.  Born in 1727, and a resident of this area by the 1750s, John McCabe was among the first to enlist when Delaware's Continental Regiment was reorganized in the winter of 1776-1777. An ardent supporter of Independence, he served throughout the war. Noted for its bravery and discipline, the Delaware Regiment was exceeded by no other in length and continuity of service. Participants in nearly all of the major battles of the Revolution, they were often chosen for the most dangerous tasks. Their conduct earned them the praise of their superiors, and the respect of their enemies. Forced to endure great hardship, they played a key role in the struggle to establish our Nation. Greatly depleted in number, Private John McCabe and his victorious comrades returned to Delaware in January 1783. Following his discharge he returned to his home, where he resided until his death on January 20, 1800.
