  1. I need some type of proof that Noah and Nancy were married, marriage license, Family Bible notes, I also need some proof that Noah was the son of Rev. Moses Westberry. If
    someone could help me, I would be most appreciative. I am trying to use this information to be able to be a member of – DAR Daughters of the American Revolution. My mother
    was Louise annie Westberry Smith, my grandmother was Mattie Haddock Westberry.

  2. How would getting this information help you get in the DAR? How was the Revolutionary War Patriot in the family? Noah fought in the Civil War and that does not help. I can’t find the parents of Moses Westberry which would give me the possibility of a patriot. We are definitely related so I will see what I can do to help. I am in the DAR from Patriots on my Maternal Grandmothers line.

  3. I found that Capt. Josiah Furman a Patriot in the Revolution is Moses father, he never married his mother Sarah Westberry, that is why he has her maiden name. There was a book written about Furman and DNA testing done that supports he is the father of Moses Westberry. I found it on the Sons of the American Revolution Site, they have opened a line for Furman but for one of his legitimate heirs. I will write to you again when I come across the name of the book again.

    Be Blessed
