Barbara Lugar, Carol’s Ancestral Grandmother’s link to DAR

Revolutionary War Soldier

Barbara Lugar (1796-1862) was the daughter of my DAR Ancestor Adam Lugar.  This family research has been very easy for me because there is so much data already done on the life of Adam Lugar.  The story goes he deserted his Germany regiment and followed George Washington.  I love the story I read that he had so much land on Turkey Hill in Virginia that he traded his land for a fiddle.  I know a lot of us just love the stories. I just wonder where the fiddle ended up.

Barbara married William Hunter (my ancestral grandfather who moved from Giles County, Virginia to the county and state where I was born – Charleston, Kanawha, West Virginia.
