From the Dollarhide History on this site: "In a surviving hand written application for pension submitted by Revolutionary War veteran John Dollarhide, who applied in 1823 and again in 1846, he said 'I was born in 1750 in Caswell Co., NC.'"
From Lee Murrah's site: "John served in the Revolutionary War at the Battles of Kings Mountain and Cowpens in South Carolina. There is no written record of his service, and he was never able to obtain a pension based on his service. However, his descriptions in his pension applications are so vivid that the DAR has accepted his service."
"After North Carolina, the Dollarhides lived successively in Kentucky; Tennessee; Sevier Co., Arkansas (1810); Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana (before 1846); and finally Angelina Co., Texas (1846)."
And again from the Dollarhide History on this site: "Many of the descendants of John Dollarhide can be identified for several generations, including the largest number of people with the name Dollarhide living today, mostly in the southern states of Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida."
John lived to be about 102 years old. He is surmised to descend from progenitor Francis Dollahide as follows:
