The Reverend John Gano was a Chaplin for General George Washington during the American Revolutionary War. There are two portraits painted by Erwin M. Hearne Jr., one Gen Washington sits bowed in prayer on his horse with hat at heart and Rev. Gano leads the Continental Army in prayer near West Point, NY. The other depicts Reverend John baptizing General Washington. Of course the offspring of the Reverend helped populate KY. Son, Capt Daniel Gano (who served under Gen. Washington) founded Covington,KY and many of his descendants settled in Georgetown, KY. My maternal grandmother was a Gano, and a little over ten years ago I inherited a Gano geneology book from a deseaced aunt. I know that originally Rev. Gano was laid to rest at the Forks of the Elkhorn Church. But, he was later reinterred in a DAR plot in FRankfort, KY. There was a feature story and a picture in the April 1965 SAR magazine. I live near Danville in Boyle Co, KY. Can anyone help me find this final resting spot of Reverend John Gano ?
