PREFACE.



PREFACE.

The Fifth Volume of the Lineage Book embraces members of the
National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution en-
tering in the years 1893-94. There has been no change in present-
ing these records except that more stress is laid upon tracing the
several lines of ancestry. It is the result of greater care having been
bestowed by applicants upon their papers, but in larger degree due
to the untiring research of those in the office, who have become
experts, not infrequently instructing members in their vain efforts to
untangle ancestral claims. I take pride in calling attention to this
as the work is valuable and will greatly aid in future publications.

Historical precision is a myth, or can, perhaps, be better symbol-
ized by shifting sands. Facts accepted for a century are suddenly
discredited by the publication of an old letter, or a resurrected orderly
book. Pivotal events are not subject to such disturbances, but many
legends, stories and traditions cherished for generations have for
want of proof been rejected.

Names continue to give trouble. Let no one become unamiable
over mistakes in a name, as long as we have records sent where the
family names have been three times changed since the Re\ _»lution.
From such inattention to patronymic accuracy some one, of course,
is injured. We have no national chirography, neither the delicacy
of the French, the grace of the Germans, nor the sturdy "bold
round hand " of the English. We have a something that partakes
of each without the character or excellence of either. In a gener-
ation, through the labors of our public schools, we may anticipate
a development in our penmanship claiming the dignity of being
American, meantime the editors of Lineage Books must patiently
struggle on.

This is the last volume in which a member who entered on a col-
lateral line will appear, the constitution having been changed so as
to limit membership to lineal descent by the Fourth Continental
Congress. In these five volumes are the names of many young sol-
diers whose lives were given for liberty ere they had been crowned
by family ties ; also in these books the " Roll of Honor " has been
glorified by illustrious heroes, notably Francis Marion, Francis
Nash, Nathan Hale, Nicholas Herkimer and George Washington .

from the French in 1759, he visited it in disguise and reported
the dilapidation and the lack of discipline to Col. Ethan Allen.
The next morning, May 10, 1775, he participated in its capture,
"one of the most brilliant exploits of the war, and accom-
plished without the loss of a man." In 1776 he commanded
