Re: Teachey Family:Palatinate, New Bern N.C.
Good News! He is listed in the DAR Patriot Index as " Wimbeck Boney, bpt 10-7-1731, d. p 9-18-1801 NC m. Catherine Teachey PS NC". This means that someone has established him as serving in the RW, and used him as a qualifying ancestor for DAR membership. The PS means that some one recieved a pension based on his RW service. As there were so few records of military service that survived, persons seeking a pension usually petitioned the courts. This means that sworn statements as to when and where military service occurred were taken by the courts. Most of these records survive. Your friend can, for a fee, obtain from the DAR copies of the papers filed by the person whose membership was granted.These would include the papers I mentioned. If your friend can establish the relationship between herself and the person who obtained DAR membership on Wimbeck's service, then her job will be much easier.
