You are a gold mine. I have been looking for this info for years. I want to give a report on this type of info at the next Motsinger reunion at the Old Shed church, this Sept. We always have the reunion the first Sunday of Sept just south of Crab Orchard Illinois, in Williamson County. I am the president and my wife is the sec. We have tried our best to keep it going. My grandfather died 3 years ago, (age 96) and most of this stuff he didn't know. Most family history came from my grandfathers brother Hobert. I am finding that alot of what he had was done by guess work, and is not all that correct.
How did you find the info on the Swamp Fox and our family. I would like to know more if possible. I went to South Carolina this Summer and visited the grave of Marion's and several battle fields,(Cowpen's)etc. I was a fan of the Swamp Fox even before I found out that we had family that fought with him.
It looks like my family goes like this, Felix,John,Joshua,Solomon,George,Virgil(Copper),Virgil Hugh, Mark(me), and my boy's Caleb and Gabriel. I will have to look in my records for all the names of Solomon's children but I know my great grandfather George is one of them, of hand I know of Charles and Edward(Monk). There are several more and I will get back with there names. I have a picture on my wall of 4 of them. Would you like a copy of some of the older pic's?
How does one go about being a Son of the Revolution? This is great stuff and I can't wait to share it at the reunion. It is amazing how little most of them know.
Hope to hear from you soon--Mark
