For SAR application I need proof that Sylvester's father was John and that John's father was Raphael Wimsatt.
Raphael Wimsett Born: October 01, 1754 in St. Mary's County, MD Died: May 25, 1828 in Ky. Buried at Holy Cross, KY (or at St. Thomas Cem.?) +Susannah Cissell Born: January 28, 1760 in St. Mary's Co., MD Died: Aft. 1841 in Ky. Buried at Holy Cross, Kentucky m: 1783 in Maryland
John Wimsett Born: Bet. 1784 - 1789 Died: Bef. 1832 in Ky. +Mary Eleanor Hagan Born: Abt. 1785 m: June 20, 1808 in Nelson Co., Kentucky. 1st marriage.
Sylvester Wimsatt Born: February 16, 1810 in Nelson Co., KY Died: August 27, 1877 in St. Joseph, Daviess Co., Kentucky. Buried: St. Alphonsus Catholic Cemetery,Daviess Co., Kentucky. +Ellen Spalding Born: February 10, 1816 in Nelson Co., KY Died: June 18, 1876 in Ky. m: October 12, 1832 in Nelson Co., or Marion Co.,KY.
Raphael's will mentions his son John. Raphael's Rev. War pension papers mentions his grandson, Sylvester numerous times.
Besides child naming patterns and undocumented online GEDs I haven't found anything to indicate that John had a son named Sylvester.
Would like to find additional proof between Raphael and John and between John and Sylvester.
