Member Mark Reid has shared the following request:
I have been working with Joe Francis of Mineola .
Joe is researching his Francis family and preparing a book based on this research.
Joe has done years of research and has a mountain of material, but has run into a couple of problems.
I plan to ask one of our DAR members for help.
Joe has ancestors who might have served in the Revolutionary War. I cannot determine from DAR indexes whether two patriots listed are “his.” The two candidates are:
John Francis, patriot No. A041596
William Francis, patriot No. A041623
Joe’s ancestors are John and William Francis, younger brothers of a Henry Francis of Montgomery County
(now Wythe) VA.
Perhaps a DAR member could obtain the descendants of John and/or William so Joe could determine if the two numbered patriots are his ancestors.
