I have received a copy of the DAR (Daughter's of the American Revolution) Application # 672224 from DAR.If you would like a copy of this application, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll email you this 4 page document if you are interested in getting your DAR on this soldier Samuel WEAR of Sevier Co., TN.It will save you the $10 fee.
Samuel Wear - Mary Gilliland (dau. of John Gilliland) Malinda / Melinda Wear - William Bradshaw Dianah Bradshaw - Kindred Mitchell Watkins Pleasant Mitchell (Ped) Watkins - Martha Jane Robertson Effie Mae Watkins - Marshall Lee Austin one more generation - living individuals
Looks like this application tied into DAR app# 552779. I know there are more than a few DAR application made on this soldier Samuel Wear but this is the one that fit closer to our family line.Our line is Martha Bradshaw (dau. of Wm Bradshaw & Melinda Wear) who married Andrew C. Thomas.
I'm also interested in the book publications they use asreferences, if anyone has access or own's these books:
1.Looking Back Through the Years by Baily & Lundamood, page. 39)
2.East Texas Connections by Ouida Day Bailey, pp. 49, 54 which list parents
I already have a copy of the "Descendants of East Tennessee Pioneers, 2nd Ed, by Olga Jones Edwards & Ina Wear Roberts (they did not use this book as part of their references though)
