You're welcome. I'm glad I could assist you.
It is wonderful to meet another relative! I do not believe you will have difficulty in establishing your eligibility into DAR. I used to have the information you could use to become a member through William Woods and his wife (my 6th great-grand parents). While the Woods and associated families do not have the stature of the Lee, Jefferson, and Washington families they are well known contributors to colonial America, and beyond. Very patriotic Virgina aristocrats if you will.
It is amazing that Col. William and sons were so close to the formation of America (neighbors and friends to Jefferson and other founding fathers to have not been appointed to high federal office. Although many held military commissions, county and state political office/judiciary appointments. They were certainly on the fringe of the founding of this great nation. That fact along with the sacrifices made on the battlefields through out the history of our nation speak volumes of the stock these ancestors were.
Nice to meet you. Stay in touch.
