I am trying to verify that Christopher Olinger, b. Feb 18, 1737 in Germany, and Eva Margaret Siler, b. Dec 1, 1781 in Augusta County, VA, are the parents of Nancy Arminta Olinger, b. Jan 11, 1806 in Russell County, VA and Robert Stanford Holmes, b in 1803. They were probably married about 1822, since their first child was born in 1823 in Virginia. The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution sent me the following reply to my DAR supplemental application:
"Thank you for submitting your supplemental application for Christopher Olinger. In order to complete the vertification process for this supplemental we need some additional information.
Though we know that the parents of Susannah Holmes were Robert S. Holmes and Nancy, and we know that a deed of gift states the Christopher Olinger had a daughter named Nancy Olinger, we need additional documentation that shows that Nancy, the wife of Robert, and Nancy, the daughter of Christopher, were the same individual. A marriage record for Robert Holmes and Nancy would most likely establish this relationship. Court records, land records, or probate records naming Nancy Holmes as the heir of Christopher Olinger would also probably be sufficient to establish this relationship."
I have a copy of the information from the Early Settlers of Lee County VA and Adjacent Counties, Volume II, but this does not satisify the DAR.
I would appreciate any help that anyone can give me.
