Wow, that is absolutely incredible. I could only imagine having that much family rooted in American history (mine are more recent early 20th century immigrants from Europe). Have you done a lot of the primary research into them or is it mostly passed down through the family?
And some fighting in the south with the “Swamp Fox”, and up north with John Stark at Bennington, whew, the stories they could tell. With such an early population of family in the colonies, did that extend as well later on to their relatives fighting in the Civil War?
I generally look into/learn about the physical items of the period since I don’t have any directly connected family members that I know of to research, so I get excited to hear others who do, it really brings a life to the history. Thanks for sharing, so cool
