The only info I have on the Christenberry/Christenbury family can be found in Albert H. Brigance's book,"Christenberry/Christenbury Genealogy." My g-grandfather was William Wilson Christenberry (through his first wife, Mollie Almetta Hinson), s/o Eli Asque Christenbury.
I have begun to research my line to submit a supplemental for Nicholas to the DAR. I have a copy of the letter from Ann Christenbury to the NC State Assembly, asking to be exempt from paying taxes because her husband was still a prisoner to the British as of the battle of August 16, 1780 (the Battle of Camden in South Carolina). He also received a land grant in 1783 which would also qualify him to be a DAR Patriot. In order to receive a land grant during the Revolution, a man would have to take the Oath of Allegience which was a dangerous thing to do.
