I do not have proof of his service that was accepted by the DAR. I was able to join under another line, and am still pursuing proof on the DeTray patriot. I'm sure you know how the standards are stricter for admission now. This spring, I plan to spend some time in New England looking for citizenship papers that are supposed to exist. I have found the DeTray name recorded in two histories of the Revolution, but no actual military record. I would be glad to share what I have, including a death record that turned up recently. It's great to know that others are interested in this line, but it's proven to be quite a challenge!
