My Great Great Great, etc. Grandfather:
Served as captain in the Revolutionary War, fighting in the Battle of King's Mountain. A member of the convention (to ratify the Constitution of the U.S.) of 1788-89, "..was a man of unusual ability, well educated for his day and one of the county's leading men."
But then it just all went downhill from there, apparently.
