Okay.. I know these posts are really old.. I amjust hoping someone is still out there who can help me. I recently ran accross an old DAR app in my grandmother's papers for a woman I have no idea who she is. But, I know that there is some connection to the Richard Respess II born 1764 and me.
I dec. from Thomas Respess born 1720 married Esther Burton who died ..then he married Mary Carroway. They had a son named Richard born in 1755 who married Elizabeth Ormond. I know Thomas was in Beaufort, NC.
My grandfather Richard Respess died in 1997. I am trying to gather as much information as I can.. and basically with little to go on.
I think that the Richard Respess that the DAR app refers to was Thomas' nephew. The DAR app that I have is for a Jessie Respess Banks from Macon, GA. She appears to be the granddaughter of Nathan L. Respess born 1800 married to Louisa Williams. The app was approvedMarch 27, 1924.
If anyone can help me with this and tell me it I am getting this right.. and a little more info about my direct Respess line.. I would appreciate it.
