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.

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.
  • 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.


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 do not know why George Langton could be named Sr. My grandfather was Jacob Daniel Langdon. It seems the name change came with George's son, John. My cousin, Robert Langdon, did the DNA test. Have you looked up the lostlangton website?

Thank you April for all your work on George Langton. I admit I had hit a brick wall and you breached it.

Thanks for your message on my profile. I understand the briar patch feeling... Going through it on another project... Re: "International Marriages" - USE CAUTION. It's one of those horrendous compilations similar to the Millennium File.

Hi again, April,

Thank you for the message on my profile re Samuel Peck(s). In the PGM project, we have handled other situations in this same way, hence my thoughts on leaving the profile. And, although it isn't germane to the discussion by any means, just to explain, I didn't create Samuel's profile; I adopted it and did a lot of research to find whether he existed or not. I am related to Paul Peck, Sr, hence how I became involved with the seeming - and actual - duplicate profiles in the family. Thanks again. Sharon

Hi April,

Thank you for your note on Samuel Peck re combining the two Samuel Peck's (son of Paul Sr, and son of Paul Jr) into the same profile. I hesitate to do that for fear the son of Paul Sr will be readded. I'll take a look to see if I can do anything to help with the profile to show that they are the same person.

Hi April,

I changed Martha Kirby Hale's LNAB to Unknown, as I was unable to find any quality sources to support it. If you want to add her to to her sibling's as their mother, you can do so now. Her new ID is Martha (Unknown) Hale

Nice job on John Osgood. Thank you. I have to say I am finding the collaboration because of the google group is awesome, even if it is a pain to keep up with.

Thanks for your kind remarks April.

I'm still learning how to do this research, but trying to be thorough.

If you ever get a chance to visit Dorsetshire, it is one of the most beautiful parts of the UK, with a very spectacular coastline and interesting history.....

Hi April,

I appreciate and agree with your comments regarding William Horsford (not Hosford).

I am in the throes of adding his believed siblings, and have added info in the public comment to support the change to the correct birthname.
