Yes, I'll let you know what the results are.I also come down through Jesse James as well, cousin!!Then Thomas, James Washington, Bertha, and then my grandmother and so on.Do you know where James and Jesse James graves are?Someone posted on the Yahoo site that they'd post directions the next time they went, but I haven't heard anything yet.I know the general vicinity.I did go to John's grave and DAR marker in March. I would love to have him as my Patriot!I would be honored... but, right now I don't want to submit the app and lose my money.It's wonderful that they are working with you at DAR on this!Keep me posted as how it goes.If they accept James as a son I'll difinitely submit a supplemental. Do you know where Thomas is buried?I found his wife Parthena by accident in a Vance cemetery when I was in KY last weekend.Also, I visited GRC park a few weeks ago where John took place in the battle of Pickaway.All so exciting!!I'm such a nerd!
