These are my great-great-great-great-great-grandparents, Benjamin Shepard Burgess and Rebecca Chapin. Their fathers, Lt. Joseph Burgess and Pvt. Levi Chapin, fought in the Revolutionary War. No photos of them, though (sorry).
Right now I am trying to get my genealogy stuff together so I can join the Daughters of the American Revolution eventually. It will probably take some time to figure out how to document everything to their satisfaction.
In this photo, I took information out about me (note #1), my parents (2), my grandparents (3) and my great-grandparents (4) so you're left looking at little notes about generations 5 through 9. I find it very interesting to piece together bits of the family history through records and such.
There might be an easier way, though, as apparently on my dad's side of the tree, people live to be about 99.9999 years old, so we'd only have to jump back five generations total to find our patriot. If his recorded baptism date is anywhere close to his birthdate, this poor baby was 12 years old when he fought in the war. Twelve. My husband said well, it's not like they got to sit around and play video games back then. Times were tough.
