Thanks for the information. To the best of my knowledge, none of my Cleavers was a member of the military during the revolution so I haven't turned to DAR yet.

My focus is on Peter (b.1831/32) and wife Sarah. First name is confirmed from headstone in Hickory Grove Cem. Last name alleged to be Bacon. I'm searching for hard documentatinof Sarah's last name.

As for Peter (the immigrant ancestor) Cleaver (Clever/Klever), he is generally thought to be of German origin but I've not personally seen the documentation. A couple of citations i clude:
