I am looking for more information beginning with my great grandfather, John Van Doren Applegate (b. 1-4-1851;d. 8-15-1893).I know that he married Anne C. Compton in 1877.His parents were David D. & Caroline (Dey) Applegate (m. 11-29-1846). John had a brother also named David D. born 3-14-1858. I have a d.o.d. for Anne (Compton) Applegate, but no birth date.What information I've been able to put together from family bibles is that John & Anne had four sons; Alfred Ellis,b. 6-13-1879,no d.o.d. David D.,b. 12-24-1880,no d.o.d. Harvey,b.10-12-1882,d. 8-15-1896 Abijah,b.10-13-1888,d. 11-28-1966, he was my grandfather. I have a d.o.d. (4-27-1891) for a David D.,but I don't know for which of the three. Any help filling in the blanks or going back even further would be greatly appreciated.
