You might try contacting the Sons of the American Revolution  branch covering Dekalb County Alabama.   (Sorry I don't know the organization well enough to give you contact info.)    The SAR  in Arkansas has practically adopted my 7 great grandfather's gravesite  (installing a newer headstone, having ceremonies at graveside, etc.)... I think this is rather common for Revolutionary War Soldiers.
