The Kettle Creek Monument

Do you have an ancestor who fought at the Battle of Kettle Creek on February 14, 1779? If his name is not listed on the monument, we would like to add it.

The Kettle Creek Chapter NSDAR maintains the monuments and the memorial marker area of the Battle Field. The Wilkes County Commission owns the Battle Ground.

The Battle Ground Committee of Kettle Creek Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution accepts applications from descendants of patriots who fought at the Battle of Kettle Creek on February 14, 1779. To have names of patriots added to those already on the monument you must be able to document that your ancestor was at the Battle of Kettle Creek on February 14, 1779.

It is not enough that your ancestor fought with a commander who was at this battle. A Revolutionary War pension claim paper is excellent proof of service. We also accept South Carolina Accounts Audited or South Carolina Department of Archives and History documents. A personal or family memoir compiled and printed before 1900 that states your ancestors service at the battle, either from a first or second hand account that has nothing to do with the Andrews/Green List, will most likely be acceptable. Other proof that you have may be submitted.
