My Minister Says I'm Telling the Truth

This gentleman, who indicated he was a minister, signed a early 19th century pension application for a Revolutionary War veteran in Kentucky. I guess they were hoping testimony would be more credible if a minister believed it.

  1. Help us out here - is the indication that he is a minister included in this scrawl? or is this just his signature?

  2. There is no indication in the signature that he's a minister. Part of the flourish at the end is the "seal."

  3. My guess is way out there -- Abnzer T. Oronsohn; that is the best I can do on this one!

  8. The last name looks like Darkhorse to me, and the first looks like Ahmet, but since he probably isn't muslim, I'll say Abner.

  16. I'm guessing middle initial T or F and last name Dickerson or Dickenson
    First name has me stumped....I was thinking along the lines of Ahmzet, but have never heard of such a name...

  20. Let's just say that Connie Leaman and Bobby Gail together are closest. This guy is a relative of mine, but that's probably not any real help.

  23. Ahmed Rucker.
    The "flourish" at the end indicates the "seal." In this case, it appears to have been just an "s" with a fancy circle around it.
