DAR ? of Samuel Black Acklin's descendants???

Is there a descendant of Samuel Black Acklin & Elizabeth Hunt that has ever joined the DAR using Christopher Acklin (1745 VA)as the Revolutionary Soldier????
A fellow researcher has brought it to my attention that there was a Samuel Acklin who married Rebecca Cusick of Washington Co., VA b. 1779.Her husband died by 1795 when she married Benjamin Tipton.The area and time frame makes it possible that this second Samuel could be the son of Christopher & Christian Black Acklin.
Samuel & Rebecca had a son named Samuel Jefferson b. in 1792.I would be interested in hearing from any of his descendants, too.
Are there any researchers out there that could clarify this situation for me?I have personally always taken the story on John Hunt, claiming his son-in-law to be a son of his good friend Samuel Acklin to be a mistake by the writer.I'm sure there are others out there that would be interested in having this question solved, too.
Thanks, r. unrein
