A man named Hugh Vorhees once had a heck of a website where he did quite a bit of history on all the Applegates. I was even in the list and didn't even know it.
I don't know why but his site is no longer up but he is alive in Wheeling, WV I think it is. My Grandfather Harry Applegate has talked to him and we were suppose to go meet him but as of this writting we have not and it's been 4 or 5 months since he talked to him.
I did at one time print out Mr. Vorhees entire list, think I used an entire case of paper, I also thought I had it in MS Word but can't seem to find it. I'll keep looking but can you provide some specific names and dates?
