Thank you Tim, I am wondering if there is a list of his two families
of children 6 of Hopestill and 7 or 9 by MS. Bassett mentioned only in
her daughter in law's bio from Nebraska many years later.
Someone has posted his application for a Pension as a Revolutionary
War Veteran from Cherry Hill seemed horrendous.
I have not yet checked the links you sent.
