This will I belief is the one refered to in a "Denbo Diaspora" article. It states:
"Regarding the Elijah Denbo conflicts, and an SAR ap-plication paper found later to be
false (and a 1970s DAR applica-tion that was later negated based on this falsification), I can offer the following: The fraudulent
SAR Application was made by the self-styled Dr. Francis Jesse D’enBeau (once simply Frank
Denbo). He is the person who erected the stone for Elijah Denbo that is in the cemetery in Indiana; that stone cites Revolu-tionary service, and of course, we know that anyone can put any-thing they want on a tombstone -- the original stone had no such
information. “Dr., D'enBeau" was a grandson of the Joseph Denbo who married as his sec-ond wife, Jane Lowry Martin. Later, DAR applications were based on his SAR membership
and court records of Elijah’s "estate" in Indiana. These were later to be considered "altered" at the courthouse."
I have been to the library in English and if you see this will you'll understand why it is considered altered. Though typed neatly here, when you look at it you can tell someone added the part about Joseph being Elijah's son at some later date. I'd hate for others to fall for this as I did.
