I had forgotten that I had uploaded ancestry information to the DNA site. As reported in my thread, there is no evidence of a connection between James Asa and the Daniel in the pension records cited. My deceased cousin cited a connection from an abstract of pension records in his application to join the SAR, but I have not found this volume so cannot verify his source (you would think the SAR would have checked it, though). I will see if I can add this information to the DNA site.
