I would like a lookup for Hugh Caldwell b abt 1751, d 1/26/1838. He married Ruth Holstein abt 1794. In an obituary I found for him it indicated "Another Revolutionary soldier gone." He died at Craigs Creek, Craig County, Virginia at the home of his son James. The obituary gave his age as 87. As far as I know he would have been in Virginia during the Revolutionary War most likely Botetourt County. Thank you for your assistance.

Hello:

In double checking our index, we do have Hugh Caldwell in our index, although the dates seem to be somewhat different. He is from Botetourt County, so maybe you have more up-to-date information than the ladies that joined previously.

CALDWELL, Hugh
Birth: IR 1740
Service: VA
Rank: Pvt
Death: VA p 1815
Patriot Pensioned: No Widow Pensioned: No
Children Pensioned: No Heirs Pensioned: No
Spouse: (1) Ruth Hostein

Since someone has established membership in the NSDAR through him, you may obtain a copy of the DAR application by sending a check for $10.00 payable to Treasurer General NSDAR. Provide the patriot information and if you know the child of the Patriot through whom descent is claimed, provide that also. Mail the check along with the information to:

Record Copy Department
Registrar General NSDAR
Administration Building
1776 D Street NW
Washington, DC 20006-5303.

Requests for record copies may take six to eight weeks, as they are very busy.

We are sorry for any confusion.

If you are interested in DAR membership, each chapter has members who will assist you in connecting to your Revolutionary Patriot. If you would like more information about joining DAR or finding a chapter in your area, please let me know.

Hope this helps and if we can help you again, please feel free to contact us.

Best regards, Jan

Thank you for the information. Where would I find a local chapter for the Cabell County area of West Virginia?

If you wanted to send me your address and telephone number at jldowning@comcast.net, we could have a chapter contact you in your area.

If you check on the website www.dar.org you can find a listing of chapters in West Virginia under how to become a member.

We would be happy to have a chapter invite you to a meeting and help you with the application process, but whatever is easiest for you.

Best regards, Jan
