Oh yes, I am very deeply entrenched in the family history stuff. We have one Patriot in the DAR registry, but I would really like to link to this particular one (who is not in the registry), since he carries my paternal surname. He’s been very tricky to locate, however. The proverbial “brick wall.” If you ever have some time to go over to family search.org (free) and browse through the Rev War pension applications, I highly recommend it. Each applicant had to give his own history to the court scribe, who wrote everything down. Some of the things those men saw were just jaw-dropping. The testimonials were taken when these were very old men. I found the testimonial of a distant cousin who ran away from home and joined when he was only 13. I think he witnessed every battle in the southern theater, plus he was at the surrender in Yorktown. Sometimes you have to wonder how much the truth was stretched, but fascinating to read nonetheless.
