I am helping a my husband female cousin establish her eligibilty to join National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution.

Their Grandparents
Eugene Horace Garr 1859 - 1931 born Kentucky - have death certificate and various census records
Helen Matilda App 1876-1950 born Kentucky
Have ordered copy of Marriage License,

Great grandparent
Horace Stringfellow Garr 1832 -1909 born Virginia have death certificate which list parents as Jacob and Susanna with no last name. Is this sufficient proof?
Margaret Elizabeth Byrne 1832 -1864 Kentucky
Have copy of marriage license

Great Great Grand Parents
Jacob Gaar 1782-1854 Virginia
Susanna Gaar 1784-1864 Virginia
1850 census
miscellaneous articles
I am trying to get copy of his Will from Kentucky

Great Great Great Grandparents
Andrew Gaar 1750-1811 Virginia
Christena Wilhoit 1750 1837 Virginia
John Gaar 1744-1808 Virginia
Margaret Wilhoit 1745 1823 Virginia

Both Andrew and John are listed on the CD SAR Patriot Index Edition III

I have a copy of Gar Genealogy and I belong to so I have access to Census Records. I need to prove that Jacob and Susanna were the son and daughter of Andrew and John. I have ordered from NSSAR and NSDAR "Copy of Record" dealing with Andrew and John Gaar with lineage passed to Jacob and/or Susanna.

Can anyone help with documented proof of Jacob and Susanna's parents? Any information and guidance would be appreciated.

Thank you

Sandy Cowan
