Saturday Night Genealogy Fun!

Randy Seavers is one of my favorite genealogist’s

and every Saturday night he has a fun night specifically for his followers like myself.

I am a member of DAR and have several lines back to the time of the US Revolutionary War (1775-1783), about 240 years ago. My mission also will be to add a supplemental application for this particular grandfather, Robert Hunter, Sr. Other ancestors have already submitted him so this will be easy for mine.

Here’s mine (from my Hunter line):

1)I (1942-????)knew my paternal grandfather, John Wesley Hunter (1891-1971)

2)John Wesley Hunter (1891-1971), my grandfather)knew his paternal grandfather, Samuel Elijah Hunter (1829-1894).

3) Samuel Elijah Hunter (1829-1894), my 2nd great-grandfather)knew his paternal grandfather, Robert Hunter, Sr. (1765-1828)

4) Robert Hunter, Sr. (1765-1828, my 4th great grandfather)served in the Revolutionary War and participated in the Battle of Point Pleasant under Capt. John Lucas, Thomas Burk’s list, 5-30-1774, and was appointed overseer of road (10-7-1774). Also listed in source from Giles County Genealogical Society in Pearisburg, Virginia, Capt. Daniel Smith’s Co.of Fincastle Co. Militia.

On one of my genealogy trips to visit the Warner Hall Graveyard at Warner Hall in Virginia (my ancestor who leads me to my cousin, George Washington), we made a special trip to Giles County Courthouse to visit and take photos of the Revolutionary Memorial Stone with Robert Hunter (my 4th great-grandfather’s) name listed.
