WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (AP) - A soldier who served in the American Revolutionary War has had his grave marked and honored in a ceremony in northeastern Pennsylvania.

The Daughters of the American Revolution joined the Boy Scouts and American Legion Post 463 in marking the grave of Thomas Lamoreaux (lam-or-OH’)

A grave marker honoring his service in the War of 1812 was dedicated in 1932. The Boy Scouts placed an American flag on the new grave marker which was dedicated Sunday commemorating his service in the Revolutionary War.

The grave is on a farm in Jackson Township, near Wilkes-Barre.

Lamoreaux was an ensign in the New York Militia during the Revolutionary War and later served as an Army private in the War of 1812.
