DeWalt Theobald Ankeny
Birth: Nov. 16, 1727, Germany
Death: Mar. 4, 1781
Clear Spring
Washington County
Maryland, USA

A memorial stone was placed in St. Paul's Cemetery after DeWalt's burial place nearby in an orchard was lost and family graves plowed over. His last wife was Margaret Becker Frederick. It was said he had twelve children. There are questions as to actual dates of births and names of first two wives, but his first or second wife was probably Mary Jane Domer(Dormer) who was killed in a barn fire trying to save the animals.

Dewalt took an Oath of Allegiance to the Colonial Cause before the Justice of the Peace in Washington Co, MD. Feb. 28, 1778 (Revolutionary War) found in unpublished records, Vol 3, Pg 39 of the D.A.R. and from "Maryland Historical Magazine", Vol 12, Pg 345. Name given "Devault Anchony".

Finally got to visit your memorial at Clear Springs, MD last Labor Day. It's truly amazing how many Ankeny's Ankney's and Ankeney's are here because of you.
