DAR has made their Index available online which has made it possible for me to search for the record of service for each ancestor. The Pennsylvania Archives has been an invaluable resource too. Heritage Quest also provides Revolutionary War Records.
So far I have found 93 ancestors... Yep, that's right, 93 men who offered their service to the War of Independence so that this nation would be a free country. God Bless Them! These men represent both the Hughes and the Smith sides of my family tree. They may not have all been men who went off to battle, but they were all people who supported the effort to gain independence by pledging their allegiance and preparing themselves to answer the call to arms if and when it arose.
