Aaron Preston from Tolland, CT (b 22 Apr 1741, d. 1780 Carolina)married to Mary Prentice has a Revolutionary War Roll record connected to him on Ancestry but I can not find him on the DAR patriot's database and no one ever seems to have claimed him for their DAR membership. The Ancestry record when opened is an extensive microfilm that has to be searched page after slow-loading page for his name and I haven't been able to go through it and actually find him. Was he a patriot? Why did he die in 'Carolina' in 1780? Why has no one ever claimed him as their ancestor for the DAR? Can you tell me anything more about him? I would really appreciate any information about this ancestor.
