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.

Hello April,

I follow the Holmes feed and today saw a change to the profile of Mercy Mary Holmes (Holmes-1160). When I looked at the change list, I saw you used to be the profile manager. Mercy Holmes is currently an orphaned profile with only a date of birth and date of death. I have an interest in all Holmes lines and wanted to know if you're interested in managing this profile or if you could provide additional info on Mercy that could bolster her profile. Thanks and take care, Ryan Holmes

Hi April!

I just wanted to thank you for your suggestions of the G2G Forum and checking out the Help pages. Doing those things really helped me to understand this site better. There's a lot to learn here but I think that I've gotten off to a good start! Bridget

Thanks for your note. I thought maybe there was a crazy merge history there, but the coincidence with the Utah Holyoaks makes more sense.

Prudence is allegedly an ancestor of mine, hitherto not known to me.
