    I have to confess, I had one advantage. My mother was a professional genealogist and so is my sister. The Daughter's Of The American Revolution are a sought after group for ladies to join but you have to be able to prove your descendancy from a real vet. There are no associate members. My mother had done so much research on those families that she had index cards on probably 85% of the men who served from the Shenandoah Valley. At one time my mother could prove a lineage and never leave her chair. Those records are now in a local historical museum. My sister, on the other hand, has focused on a much larger spectrum of Valley life and not so much on the Revolution. When I got the list of names from Fairbairn's she mulled them around a bit and could find a listing for a Barrowe/Barrow vet from Shenandoah County, Va. At one time Shenandoah encompassed the modern counties of Page and most of Warren so the original site is close by. It must have taken some real stones to send a son to the Patriot army while sitting on a Royal land grant. Or perhaps he "Runnoft".

    Best wishes for all your kind comments and helpful hints!

    "Blessed is the Nation, who's God is the Lord!!!" Psalms 33:12

    "I have fought against the people of the North because I believed they were seeking to wrest from the South its dearest rights. But I have never cherished toward them bitter or vindictive feelings, and I have never seen the day when I did not pray for them." General Robert E. Lee


    "My religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to be always ready, no matter when it may overtake me, that is the way all men should live, and then all would be equally brave." General Stonewall Jackson

    Even still, good enough for this "Colonial" CRUSADER.
