DAr just made some of its databases available to the public.

Go to the gateway page:

http://www.dar.org/library/online_research.cfm

where there is an introduction. At least initially you want the "Ancestor" section.

There you can search for your target person, and if any woman entered under his service, the member number will be listed, and the child of the ancestor under which she entered.

Perhaps that will help you right away.

Do be aware that all the material published in DAR Magazine was not necessarily well researched or well transcribed. After the Bicentennial flurry, DAR adopted more rigorous standards of evidence and proof, so ancestor-patriots accepted before that time may not be accepted today -- or a specific lineage previously accepted may subsequently have been disproved. There are warnings about these circumstances on most, if not all, such ancestors' pages.

Good hunting!
