I have a DAR Magazine up for auction on Ebay. I am also a genealogist and would love to share info first from anything I sell. I have randomly selected the Garman name to share info with you from the magazine. I wish I could list every name but that would be impossible.
This article is out of the February, 1942 issue of the National Historical Magazine published by the Daughters of the American Revolution. It is titled "Revolutionary Soldiers Buried in Bangor Episcopal Churchyard, Churtown, Pa. Church founded in 1730" It was compiled by Eleanore J. Fulton and Bertha Cochran Landis. It sites it's source as being "Based on Egle's Notes and Queries, 1893, pp 61-65; Ellis & Evan's History of Lancaster Co.; pp.687-698; Klein's History of Lanc. Co. pp.122-128, 507-515."
I will copy the information word for word and in it's entirety:
Garman (German), Leonard: b. Jan. 2, 1762; d. Feb.5, 1849, aged 87. Son of Adam. Wife, Mary Elizabeth Troop: b. Apr.13, 1770; d. July 24, 1855. Pvt. of 7th Class, 3rd Co., 10th Batt., under Capt. Martin Bowman, L. C. M.; com. by Col. David Jenkins, 1777. Pa. Arch. S5 vii 980. Pvt. of 1st Class, 6th Co.; 5th Batt., under Capt. Martin Bowman--1782. Pa. Arch. S5 vii 502. L. C. H. S. pub., xviii 73, by J. B. Lincoln, M.D., mentions him as a "Revolutionary Wagonmaster". Family tradition is that he carried farm supplies from the Lancaster Co. farm to Washington's Army encamped at Valley Forge.
I believe that L.C.H. S. may be Lancaster Co. Historical Society and Pa. Arch Pennsylvania Archives.
This is wonderful information with excellent sources. These sources can probably be found nowadays at the LDS Library.
Hope this helps somebody!!
