Joy, our DAR papers on David Rounsavall will not be of help to you because
Jane Rounsavall who m. Phillip Gilberti Hoodenpyle in 1789 in NC is a
descendant of Benjamin's son, Josiah. Josiah was a brother to David.
Josiah was captured by the British and put on a prison ship in Camden
Harbor, SC where he died. If you want them, just to see the lineage, I will
be more than happy to send you a copy.
You are eligible for The Colonial Dames of America through your descent from
Benjamin Rounsavall, father of Josiah and David. I went into CDA on
Benjamin as a new ancestor.
The Colonial Dames of America is the oldeset women's genealogical
organization in America. It was founded in June or July, 1890 - a few
months before DAR.
You did not tell me where you live. If my CDA Chapter in Jackson, MS has a
copy of my papers on David Rounsavall, I will be happy to get a copy of
those for you.
However, I have differing information from one of the gentlemen who is writing a Rounsavall book. Still waiting for more info from Jean.Anyone else have any additional information?
I struggled with finding out about Jane Rounsavall's parents also. The internet has been such a breakthrough!!
