July 4th Offer on Casefile Clues

At last count, I had at least three ancestors who were in the Revolutionary War or provided patriotic service:
  • John Tinsley, of Amherst County, Virginia, died 1817
  • Isaac Rucker, of Amherst County, Virginia , died 1790s
  • James Rampley, of Harford County, Maryland, died 1817
There may be others, but these were the first ones that popped into my mind. Search for your own patriots at the DAR site or the SAR files on Ancestry.com.

In honor of the holiday, we're offering a July4th Special on Casefile Clues--$17.76 for a year and twenty issues from Year 2 (issues 20-40).

Topics here:


  • Volume 2-Number 20--Just One Wife Who Shaves Her Age. Records hinted that a man might have had more than one wife. Despite age discrepancies and first name variations, we've likely proven that there was just one wife.
