Although Daniel Grant Rencher is not my direct line (we descend from his brother John Nelson) I have been fortunate enough to find information on his son Abram Martin Rencher.Abram was born to Daniel and second wife Catherine Warren Dawson in 1845.
I recently received from the Texas Archives, the Civil War pension application of Abram, the mortuary warrant signed by second wife Nannie, and Nannies mortuary warrant signed by her daughter Kate Rencher Brewton.One of the big surprises on the application was the testimony of witness signed by DW Rencher.I am researching to find out if this is Daniel Webster Rencher, brother to Abram.
When I received the application, I also received one for John H Rencher.I could find no corresponding John in our line.After researching a bit more, I found a "home" for the application of pension.. It was a link for another line of Rencher/Renshaws that migrated from Md. through Rowan County N. C. and then to Tenneesee.
