My mentor, Carolyn Jack, suggested requesting a search from the DAR Library via e-mail.
I sent an email on December 1st requesting a search for Elisha Freeman born Aug 10 1747 in Mansfield, Tolland, Conneticut, died in Norwich, Windsor, Vermont, and married to Lucy Bartlett.
The e-mail I got back on December 3rd said they did not find him in the Patriot Index.
The next place I will try is NARA in Waltham. Carolyn got me a packet of information on the military records available at the National Archives
The search at the DAR is very easy, here is the link http://www.dar.org/natsociety/pi_lookup.cfm
