The Ancestry website contains a database of more than 145,000 applications for the Sons of the American Revolution approved between 1889 and 31 December 1970.
Applications require a pedigree and accompanying information to demonstrate a generation-by-generation link to a patriot ancestor. Genealogical information submitted may include references to Revolutionary War pension files, baptismal records, marriage records, cemetery records, census records, family Bible records, deeds, court records, documented family and local histories, and copies of applications to other lineage societies. Applications also typically include a short summary of the ancestor’s service. — Ancestry.com
The following list below is an extraction of vital record data of individuals in the database who have an association with Martin County. The listing below provides the person’s name, their relationship to the applicant, details provided in the application, the SAR membership number, and the applicant’s name. Each piece of information is separated by a dash.
