David Gitchel and William Choate

In reply to a comment inquiry left on an earlier post, Camp Blair (named after then governor of the state of Michigan Austin Blair) was located on the bluffs overlooking the Chain Bridge near Georgetown, DC, opposite Virginia. Unfortunately the burial locations of David Gitchel and William Choate, who died near Chain Bridge and presumably buried there, were lost long ago. It is possible that they were later removed to other, more formal burial locations but present research has not identified them buried in the Washington area.
