Johann Jacob Shrum

My next ancestor, which I am trying to prove for a supplemental application for the Daughters of the American Revolution, is Johann Jacob Shrum, called Jacob on the DAR roll.  My other two patriots are Captain Charles McAnally of Virginia and Bryan Ward Nowlin, patriot of Virginia.  They are both on my mother's side of the family while Shrum is on my father's side.

Shrum fought the Revolution from York County, Pennsylvania, where he was private under the command of Captain James Johnston of the York County Militia.

I have now submitted my supplemental for the second time with much more detail, and, hopefully, the DAR will now accept it.  If you are related, please let me know!

Here is a copy of the ancestry back to Jacob Shrum.
