(17) A letter written by John D. Hamilton, Director of the High Point Historical Society,
dated 15 April 1974. The letter confirms that the Haley (Healey) family which the
society was then researching was the same family from which we are descended.
The Historical Society has preserved the family home built by John Haley in the
1770's in which Hugh Healey and his family also lived and done considerable
research into the family background.
(13) A letter from the National Archives, Washington, D.C., dated 4 January 1949,
giving documentation on the service record of Hugh Healey during the Revolutionary
War. This would have been a 'key' document used by Bea Miller Wilkinson in her
application to join the DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution).
(14) A hand written note by Bea
Miller Wilkinson, undated, with
additional information related to the
service of Hugh Healey in the
Revolutionary War. I am interested
in the differing information contained
in this document Vs. the National
Archives document. The National
Archives document lists service on
land, 1776 – 1783 in the New
Jersey line. The hand written note,
copied from an unnamed document,
lists service in 1776, 1777 and 1778
on board the Continental Navy ships
'Hornet' and 'Lion'. I want to
understand this better.
(15) A hand written copy of 'Applicants Working Sheet' for the DAR application.
This document is undated but shows updated birth information in different pen types,
suggesting it was updated at different times. Perhaps this was Bea's archive copy
of her documentation which she kept with her DAR records.
(16) Reduced size copy of pamplet sent with the 1974 letter from the High Point
Historical Society to Bea Miller Wilkinson. This document contains all of the collected
information compiled by the Historical Society to that date.
