DAR Patriot Adam Lugar

When I joined the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), Adam Lugar was my Revolutionary War Patriot.

Hessian Army
“Adam Lugar, born 1Mar1738 in Frankfurt, Germany (near the Baden border) joined the Hessian Army and came to America about 23 July 1776 into New York to fight with the British. After a short time he deserted the Hessians and joined the Continental Army at Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He served as a private in Captain Celeron’s Company under Colonel Posher and General Pulaski. They marched to Philadelphia, and then to Elizabethtown and finally to an area he called New Kirby, where they engaged with the British. Colonel Posher was killed and a man named Fry was made Colonel. Here they spent the winter. In Spring they marched from Pennsylvania to Charleston, South Carolina, where they engaged the British again.. After 18 months of service he was discharged. Adam moved up to North Carolina and enlisted again with the N.C. Militia and served another eight months.” – Kaye Graves Van Fleet

Clan Hunter Gatherings

After thirty years of researching my Hunter genealogy, and becoming a historian of our family history, I decided to register the Hunter surname with the Guild of One-Name Studies.

My paternal line goes to the ancestors of the Lairds of Hunterston Castle in West Kilbride, Ayrshire, Scotland.

In 2014 I attended my very first Clan Hunter Gathering in Scotland, and this coming
2017 I will be attending another one.

Our Clan Chief, Pauline Hunter of Hunterston, 30th Laird of Hunterston, has a Clan
Hunter International Gathering every three years.
