Our Ancestors Made History

History is the sum of actions by our ancestors - the explorers, immigrants, Colonists, soldiers, pioneers, and farmers who plowed and planted, built and settled this vast country. Here's a sampling of our ancestors' biographies.

1776 - Revolutionary War

  • Johann Philipp Dellinger [DAR Patriot number is A207928] was in his seventieth year when the Revolution began in 1776. On 4 October 1783, the Morgan District Board of Auditors issued a voucher for £9.9.0 to Phillip Dellinger reimbursing him for service to the War effort. Philipp was accepted in August 2011 as a DAR Patriot. His contribution was not for active service.
  • Heinrich Dellinger (DAR No. A088225) served active military duty in addition to supplying provisions to the Patriot cause. He was a son of the above Johann Philipp Dellinger.
  • Jacob Harris - 18 March, 1777, Jacob fought at the Battle of Quinton's Bridge, where he was horribly wounded and left on the field for dead by the enemy. He slowly recovered and lived to old age.
  • James Litton - private in the North Carolina Revolutionary Army. Circumstantial evidence indicates he may have been in the Battle of King's Mountain. He lived in the Piedmont area from which most of the King's Mountain soldiers came. He was probably acquainted with the Sherrills who fought at King's Mountain - his son married into their family.

1776 - Battle of King's Mountain

The Battle of King's Mountain was a turning point in the American Revolution. If the colonists had lost the battle, the two armies of Britain would have completed their pincer movement and forestalled any further rebellion. Joshua Sherrill, his father Capt. William Sherrill, and Burt Moore all fought under Col. John Sevier on October 7, 1780, at Kings Mountain, North Carolina.
Here is a sample of the "Relationship Finder" on our "Family Tree and Tools" page
April is the daughter of Kenneth A. Dellinger.
Kenneth is the son of Charles A. Dellinger.
Charles is the son of Elizabeth E. Anderson.
Elizabeth is the daughter of Joshua G. Anderson.
Joshua is the son of Betsy Moore.
Betsy is the daughter of Burt Moore.
Burt, therefore, is the fourth great grandfather of April.


I was born at the end of The Oregon Trail, at the end of WWII - two events which remain strong influences in my life.

My father joined the Navy during the war, and after being trained in electronics was shipped to the South Pacific, where he was a radioman in a two-person airplane, a T-34, which patrolled the ocean around New Caledonia.

After the war ended, my father engaged his new opportunities for a career in electronics. In such a dynamic growth industry, opportunity often meant moving to a new city, and I literally saw the United States from one side to the other and back as I was growing up.

I soon realized that my friends enjoyed extended family relationships and knew their grandparents. All but one of my grandparents were deceased by the time I was born. My curiosity about who they were grew with the passing years.

Meanwhile, the age of television and the Hollywood Western blossomed. I watched entranced as Roy Rogers, the Lone Ranger, Annie Oakley and other characters made the West safe from the bad guys. I loved the Cisco Kid and Calamity Jane. My favorite shows were Wagon Train and Rawhide. Do you remember the Rawhide theme song? "Roll 'em, Roll 'em Roll em - keep those doggies rolling, roll 'em - roll 'em - roll em - Rawhide!"

Little did I know then that my own great-grandfather Barchus came over the Oregon Trail in a covered wagon in 1864; my great-great grandmother Bacon also was on that trip. My Welch great-great-great grandparents Evans/Toone traversed the Oregon Trail in 1852, bringing with them their newly married daughter and her husband, and a widowed son-in-law and grand-baby.

Those discoveries and more came into my life because some young men decided to get high and go for a joy ride. I thought when they crashed their car into ours that my life was ruined, but the long recovery simply meant I'd have time for working on my family tree - something I might never have done otherwise. That is how, for me, what had been an interesting hobby became a passionate vocation.

Hi April,

I could be wrong, but it is my understanding that scrolling boxes are to be removed from WT. See profile: Pabodie-62. Thanks.

Hi April,

That is a good point concerning Abigail Terry Kellogg having the middle name Martha. It apparently comes from Find-a-grave but they do not have a real source either. In fact they don't know where she is buried so it's odd that they even have her. Would you like me to delete the 'Martha'? I do not have it in my own records and am not sure how it got on here. Most of my info was from Hopkin's book. Holly

I have both Charles Barnes and Sarah Woodward Henchman in the 2011 Edition of Richardson's Magna Carta. Unfortunately I did not find any ID numbers in my search. If you could check the latest that would be great!!! Thanks!

The page is not sourced very well, that's for sure. So far I am 0 for 2 here with Richardson, both with Hannah Sumner and Charles Barnes, one not having sourced info and recognized while the other having sourced info and not recognized. Truly a bizarre start for me here.

There is absolute proof that Hannah Sumner is the daughter of Daniel Henchman, and I noted it on her page here. I noticed you said that Richardson did not mention her as his daughter, but this has to be an omission rather than proof she is not his daughter.

Hi April ... concerning the photo for William Brewster-4, that was a different William Brewster (about 300 years different).  :(

My mistake! I am still learning how to WikiTree, but, think, I have come a long way from when I first joined in 2014.

I trust your genealogy knowledge, and appreciate your leadership very much.

Best Regards Holland-3338
