Finding New Revolutionary War Patriots

Since March 2020, I have been a verified member of the DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution) through my father’s mother’s (Ruth Frankie Fuller Pyatt Dourte) side of the family proving back to my ancestor, Isaac Fuller. Find that post here.

Isaac Fuller 1738-1804 A042234
Service – Lieutenant

  • Corporal: Capt. Macey Williams, Lexington Alarm
  • Lieutenant: Capt. John Porter, Col Sargent

Spouse: Mary Alden

In doing further research thru the DAR’s Genealogical Research System (GRS) I have been able to find 8 more prospective Patriots in different branches of my family tree. This is quite exciting for me as that means I can submit what is called a Supplemental for each of these patriots by proving my lineage to them. Along with each of these supplementals, documentation must be provided in order to establish proof of my lineage. These are the 8 patriots I found:

Stephen’s (my mom’s side)
Stewart

William Guthrie 1736-1823 A048629
Service – Private

  • Capt William Alexander, Col William Irvine
  • 7th regiment General Anthony Wayne’s Brigade

Spouse: Esther Craig McCelland

Jacob Lear (Lehre) 1726-1768 A068018
Service – Patriotic

  • Signed oath of Allegiance- Philadelphia
  • Doorkeeper of PA House of Assembly

Spouse: Mary Duff

Johann Peter Weil 1734-1806 A121682
Service – Private

  • Capt Abraham DeHuff

Spouse: Ana Elisabetha

Jackson

William McCoy 1754-1813 A075790
Service – Private

  • Capt Andrew Swearingen
  • Suffered depredation

Spouse: Elizabeth Royce

Pyatt’s (my father’s side)

Jacob Piatt III 1725-1784 A213981
Service – Patriotic

  • Suffered Depredation

Spouse: Elizabeth Dunham

Benjamin Piatt 1763-1851 A090919
Service – Sargent

  • Capts Sullivan & Springer
  • Cols William Russell & John Gibson

Spouse: Mary Phillips

Richard Keele 1757-1849 A063843
Service – Private

  • Capts Lyon & Horston
  • Capts Williams, Col Sevier – King’s Mountain

Spouse: Lydia Richmond

Johann Mathias Glass 1740-1830 A209566
Service – Patriotic & Private

  • Capts Joseph Erwin, LCol George Nagel, Col Richard Butler
  • Paid supply tax 1779, 1780, 1781, 1782

Spouse: Eva Christina

Another interesting aspect of finding these patriots is that Jacob Piatt III married Elizabeth Dunham…who traces back to the Mayflower and Edward Fuller. My patriot, Isaac Fuller, also traces back to the Mayflower to Samuel Fuller. Samuel and Edward were brothers. That means that my Grandfather and Grandmother on my father’s side have a shared common ancestor – Samuel and Edward’s parents. Mind-blowing!

Through this blog, I will be taking each of these patriots through the process of finding and proving my lineage and creating a supplemental. Please join me…it should be interesting!
