First, please don't spin this into a HotSpot Topic.

 

Doing some family tree research, it appears that I'm qualified to join the group, Sons of the American Revolution, as I've got a 8th Great grandfather who answered the bell at Lexington.

 

Anyone else here know anything about this group, or the Sons of the Revolution group?

I don't know a lot, but I also have couple of 7th and 8th GGfs that were in the Revolution as well, one died at the Battle of Bunker Hill.

I guess my Mother could have joined? Her Mothers’GGGF immigrated to NC in the 1750-60’s. From there they went west to MO in the 18somethings. I have no documentation of that, just what she told me from Ancestry.com stuff. I don’t really care...

My MIL joined the DAR, thinking it would help her sell houses to rich people. She quit after a couple years because it was mostly people arguing about the accuracies of different genealogical documents, and not buying houses.

My maternal grandfather supposedly could trace his ancestry back to one of William Penn’s later voyages, but I might have a problem with Quaker conscientious objectors in trying to find Revolutionary war veterans in that group.

My wife found a distant relative that came over on the ship that arrived in Plymouth a year after the Mayflower. Don’t know what that qualifies her as, but makes for an interesting story!

I have found two lines that trace to Plymouth myself, what settler? Your wife and I could be distant relatives :)

There were a couple of brothers that fought in the Rev. War, Battle of Ramsuer's Mill, Lincoln county, NC that had my last name.  They fought well enough to be singled out for their bravery. Reasonable chance I'm descended from them.  Thing is, they were on the British side.  Guess that wouldn't qualify for Sons of American Revolution.
