Infiltrating the DAR!
I believe I may have a connection to an ancestor who fought in the Revolutionary War. If I can prove it, I am in! LOL So, here is where I am having difficulty. I have an ancestor (Jabez Pitt Campbell) who has stated in published writings that both of his grandfathers were in the Revolutionary War. One grandfather would have been Francis "Frank" Campbell (born around 1742) in Delaware and the other grandfather, Phillip Townsend Young from Slaughter Neck Sussex County Delaware (born in 1750). For the life of me I cannot find any information on either of them serving but I cannot imagine Jabez would have lied in a public paper. Especially since he was a popular bishop in an A.M.E. Church!
Can someone assist me in finding some records on either one of these men from Delaware?
