DAR Lookup- John Messer, Edgefield, SC

I am looking for info on John Messer (b. 1755 in Edgefield, SC, d. 1815 in Knox County, KY). I have been told he was awarded land in KY for his service in the RW. He had several children, but I am only certain of 2 sons: Sion and Moses. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks ~ Michelle

Hi Michelle,
I did not find a John Messer in the Patriot Index, Could it be posible that he spelled his name differently. I am not saying he is not a Patriot of the American Revolution, but that we do not have a John Messer listed. Sorry that we could not help you.\
Sincerely your, Wanda

Wanda,
I appreciate your checking the index. As far as I know, he didn't go by any other name or variation in spelling. Could it be that no one has gone in under John Messer? If I can find records for him, maybe I'll be the first one :-) That would be great to find and add another patriot to the DAR.

Dear Michelle --
I, too, am seeking to qualify for DAR based on John Messer's service. I have references to his service but have not been able to obtain sufficient evidence of birth/marriage relationships to submit John for patriot recognition with DAR. I have John and James both listed in "Roster of South Carolina Patriots in the American Revolution," by Bobby Gilmer Moss, Limestone College, Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., Baltimore, 1985. Do you have any documentation of relationships for Sion (1794-1857) to his father John (1755) to his grandfather James (1735)? I would appreciate any information you might have. Thanks, Adran
