I have finally figured some more out about my Jacob Smith and he has 2 more sons that I do not have names for. they are with him in the 1810 census. one that is unknown was born between 1800-1810... Maybe your Peter? maybe not. The other son was born between 1795-1800 but also might be between 1800-1810 depending on where Abraham was counted since he was born in 1800.
Patsy, I've been very remiss in not checking in on this blog site. All the obivous reasons, I'm sure. However, you had asked me a question that I never answered......how I descend from John Lee? First off, I am aware that he fought in the Rev. and that some of his descendants are in the DAR. I have not done so. John Lee's one son, Edward Lee, was my gr-x3 grandfather. Edward's one son, Alexnader Rigdon Lee, was my gr-x2 grandfather and Alexnader's on daughter, Martha Lee, was my great-grandmother. Her one son, Clarence, was my grandfather, who was my mom's father. Whew! hope that answers the question asnd it provides you with the info you were wanting. Please stay in touch. Thanks!
Hi Patsy... I am wondering if it is Paris Baisden and Rachel Brumfield that you have in your line... and if so, what kind of info you have on the two of them!?!? If you could let me know, I'd greatly appreciate it! Thanks!
Thank you so much for your offer to help! For my female Patriot, I have her obituary which mentions her service, would that be enough proof of service for her? Her service is mentioned in other articles and biographies but the obituary is the most "official" proof I can find. Someone told me that DAR was planning a book on female Patriots and that she might be in it, though I don't really know who to contact to ask about that (firstname.lastname@example.org?). For Moses, I have service records but am having a heck of a time tying them to his family (he didn't file a pension). He also signed a paper in support of the American cause so I could also try and go down that route with him... Anyway, thanks again for any help you can give, I appreciate it.
According to a December 17, 2009 article appearing in The Charleston Gazette, the West Virginia Division of Culture and History's Archives and History Section recently upgraded the server to its free, online searchable database. As a result, the more than 5 million birth, death and marriage certificates issued in West Virginia are now easier to access online.

On George's death certificate where it has where were parents born it says unknown. I still can't find who his father is to connect him to Isaac. I know it has to be somewhere. I just don't have the experience to know where to look. I tried the DAR site. I was lost on that. Dianne
