Peter Deatrick Sr's line through his son William Phillip Deatrick is already documented by/through the DAR [application 784342 Dorothy Johns-Fouts], however there is nothing done with enough exactness for the DAR on his son Peter Deatrick Jr which I am trying to do [I am in Peter Jr's direct line].
-Does anyone have a solid, documentable reference, for Peter Jr's marriage to Mary Beard?[While there were some records for other children of Peter Sr there is nothing found for Peter Jr in the Augusta Co VA marriage records 1748-1850 nor for Rockingham Co which bordered Augusta Co to the north.]The only document that mentions the marriage is the family history piece in the Griffin Library in Corydon, but it is extrememly weak on documentation.There is a passing mention of Mary Beard as the wife of Peter Deatrick [in an as yet uncorrected DAR application] referenced by "Roster of Soldiers and Patriots of the American Revolution Buried in Indiana", which is in error, as the submitter confused Jr as being the Patriot instead of his father.
-Does anyone know if the 1830-1832 Will for Peter Sr is accessible in the Harrison Co clerk's office and is it still legible?
