Revolutionary Soldiers.
Four soldiers of the War of the Revolution have died and been buried in Champaign County: William Hays, William Kirby, Newton Shaw and John Brownfield.

All except the latter were buried in the Clements Cemetery, about four miles northeast of Urbana. Mr. Brownfield was buried in a cemetery near by, which is private property. All of these men have descendants yet in the county.
