I am still amazed at how the patriots, under such stark conditions, remained loyal to their cause and moved forward to fight another day.

My family originaly settled in what is now On the border of Lancaster and Chester County. The Cochran(e)'s had dropped the E at the end of the name at some point after leaving Ulster in the late 1600's through the early 1700s. There is an old Presbyterian Church just north of Cochranville, Pa. in Sadsbury Township. It is very close to the town of Gap, Pa. This is where Dr. Cochran was born. I have photos of many gravestones. My Great(x3) grandfather was born there in 1800 and settled in Moon township, Allegheny County (The Pt'sbgh airport is partially in Moon) And they were some of the first settlers of Middletown which was renamed Coraopolis, Pa due to another Pa. Boro w/ a similar name (1886)

I grew up on Rampart Ridge in Gulph Mills and now manage the historic DuPortail House in Chesterbrook where Gen. DuPortail stayed in 77-78 with the Havard family. It would be great if you could provide a link to the website, www.duportailhouse.com. The house is open to the public every Sunday from 1pm- 4pm (unless there is a special event planned) and tours can be arranged throughout the year.
Looking for reenactors to come to the school to talk about Revolutionary War. Can you help?

The statement "It is well for men's souls to feel that a leader of men sought and obtained guidance from the Son of Man." from http://www.ushistory.org/valleyforge/washington/prayer.html is not true. Given that George Washington was a Deist....and all that fact portends.
I was told that the law suite was settled and that we lost all claims to the monies that the government owes us, is this true?
Theresa DeHaven [06-29-2010]
My Father Stephen V Carta S/SGT won the 1957 essay "My job protecting America's freedom". He has since passed away. I would love to have a copy of the essay that he wrote, while serving in the Air Force in Ramstein Germany.

I was at Valley forge and apparently channeled deceased soldiers who reveal that it was indeed only by God's Grace that they were able to win against such odds, in near despair, under the command of the Great General George Washington. Through Divine Intervention He was able to give them His strength. We owe them everything. GOD BLESS AMERICA

I am a desentant of Jacob DeHaven and was active with this 20 years ago. Old address was 1053 Thornwood Dr Pittsburgh PA 15234 My Grandmother Iva Lydic Frederick was a direct desendant I wish I could have done more for Ms Kloeecker. This is an ongoing claim that I feel will never be resolved. Jacob won the war for our found freedom, if it were not for him, we would not be know as the United States of America (the land of the free) All courts should be able to relate to this and thank our family for the belief and dedication of the DeHavens Yours Ray Prendergast

George Washington's vision is a story many would like to believe is true. It may be akin to the story about Davy Crockett voting against the appropriation of funds which were not Congress to give away ("The Life of Colonel DavidCrockett"). The latter story appears to have been based on a real vote, but was dressed up with a back-story, and a different beneficiary. The following believes Washington's vision to be false: www.snopes.com/history/american/vision.asp

Very interesting.One glaring omission in my estimation was the appeal that Lafayette made to Washington to ban slavery in the new country. When Washington refused, Layfayette expressed extreme disappointment and said had he known that it would be continued, he might very well not have given his support to the cause of liberty.

I'm trying to identify my mystery quilt made by a women's patriotic organization probably WWII era. See photo #5601 on http://www.buckboardquilts.com/depression_era.htm Could this be Daughters of the Revolution of 1776? How would I get hold of them? Antique Quilts 5601 - Young Man's Fancy Red, white and blue patriotic - From Springfield, MO estate probably WWII. Hand pieced postage stamp squares. Great graphic design from Springfield, MO estate. Help us sold the mystery. It's not a DAR, Colonial Dames, Eastern Star or PEO quilt, but some similar women's patriotic organization, . It has women's names from the early 1900s with 3 and 4 digit numbers in all blocks except for 5 blank blocks on bottom row. In the middle the table at the top contains a candle, book and gavel, 3 empty flagpoles, an empty table and 13 empty chairs.

I come from a long line of UK Waynes, of which some emigrated early to the fledgling States. I have received notices in the past from Historic Waynesborough and think I may have dropped off the mailing list. We have not been able to accept invitations to the "Bash" before but may be visiting the USA for our first vist between July and October this year. I should like contact with anyone who may be able to advise if there are any functions etc to which we may be able to attend within that timeframe. My parents visted Paoli many many years ago and suggested we should do the same. I apologise if I seem to be going through the wrong channel but "www.madanthonywayne.org" gave a zero "not found" return. In strength, Anthony Wayne
