Revolutionary War
31 July 1998 -- William L. Chapman <n2qhj@netsync.net>
I was looking up the record for Daniel Wing,who was buried at Clymer Cemetary in Clymer, NY.  I  can give you his birth date and
approximate death date as follows:  He was born July 2, 1757 in Dartsmouth, Mass.  He was the son of Daniel and Rebecca (Gifford) Wing.  I have his death shown as 1836?. I am a descendant of Daniel Wing.  It's really nice to see  someone keeping these records for the use of all.
