Looking for information that would link this William Drenning to Lewis Drening b. 30 Dec 1788, d. 15 Mar 1860, m. Hannah Boor, children: Ellen, Wilson, Mary, William.
In researching Bedford County, PA, I came across several editions of St Clair's Bedford: The History and Genealogy of Bedford County, Pennsylvania. One of the editions contained information labeled Burials of Revolutionary War Soldiers.It included this entry:
DRENNING, William, born 30 Nov 1762, died after 1840. Private in Captain Davidsons Company, Bedford County Militia. Buried in an unmarked grave in Bedford Valley, near Bedford.
I have been using Drening, but we know there are multiple spellings for the Surname. Any information would be much appreciated.
