Hustus Studstill I see that you are the granddaughter of William Hustis Studstill. I am a descendant of Hustus Studstill, the Revolutionary soldier. I am trying to add Hustus Studstill as a DAR supplemental ancestor, but I am have been unable to prove that Elizabeth who married Frederick Lanier is his daughter. The DAR requires legal proof which means named in a will, received property from he distribution of the estate, listed in a family Bible as the daughter, and there may be other ways. I have been unable to find any of this proof. I have Hustus Studstill's will but he makes no mention of any of his children. I wonder if you might suggest a way to find this proof or if you may have the proof. Any help you could give me would be appreciated.
