I've been working on my Family Tree and just found out that I have family who fought in the Revolutionary War.
When I found that my ancestor, Peter Dumm who was born on Sept 27, 1754 and died on April 20,1837, was actually in the war I was very excited.
To think that one of my own ancestors fought for our freedom makes me feel very proud.
I was thrilled when I found out some of my family had been in the Civil War but this is even more exciting to me.
I also found several family members who came over to the USA from other countries. So now, when I go to New York I have several names to look for when I visit Ellis Island.
I love doing this research. It's so fun when you finally stumble across some new information. Though at times it can be frustrating when you keep hitting dead ends.
Have any of you found family members that were also in the Revolutionary War? If so, maybe our family members fought together. After all, it really is a small world.
