Revolutionary War Patriot
Edward HOXWORTH 1760–1847
5th Great Grandfather, DAR Ancestor
Service: Non-Commissioned Officer; Drum Major; Drummer, Pennsylvania
He entered the Revolutionary Army when only 15 years old,
and served throughout the war. He received a pension to the end of his life.
He was a small-built man, but exceedingly lithe and active.
In his younger days he would leap over an ordinary-sized horse without touching.
He was born, lived and died in Hatfield, Montgomery, Pennsylvania
The Hoxworth Family has been in America in Pennsylvania since the 1710’s
Reach out and touch your Elders,
talk to them and take many notes, even if what they say doesn’t make sense to you. Where did they, their parent, grandparents live, work, etc. Ask about customs, foods, trades, don’t forget to include the hearsay (it might come in handy). Write everything they say down, it may come into play later.
