Hi Mahayla,

Thanks for the link, some great history. I thought it was interesting how the pension record mentioned that Continental currency was so devalued that $100 could not even purchase breakfast. Also excellent that he met Colonel Lee and Baron DeKalb.

So cool that you are a direct descendent. Have you ever found any information about their ancestors prior to the 1700s? Would be interesting to see where they might have come from Europe or otherwise.

I appreciate the story, always enjoyable to learn these things and imagine figures in history and what their lives were like.
