Adsit Family Genealogy Forum
I'm looking for some help. Hannah Adsit Gardner was the daughter of Shadrach Adsit, son of John and Tamar Holdridge Adsit of the Sand Lake/Nassau region of Rensselaer County, NY. My problem is that now to complete my DAR application, I need acceptable documentation that Shadrach did have a daughter named Hannah. This fact has been confirmed many times throughout this forum as well as others. However, under DAR requirements, I need something that absolutely proves this fact (birth records, obituaries for Hannah's brothers that might list her as a surviving sibling, etc.) and proves the direct link between Shadrach and Hannah. I've tried the census records but Shadrach died in 1846 and wasn't alive to be listed in the 1850 census that identified all his children. The church that the family would have worshipped at is long gone and did not keep records.
This is the very last peice of documentation I need to complete my application and would be very grateful if someone out there has any such documentation you'd be willing to share or tell me where I can find this information. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
