Our Patriots

Our 82 chapter members can trace their lineage back to these 73 ancestors, called "Patriots" in the DAR. Our Patriots served in 11 of the original colonies during the time of the American Revolution. These Patriots held various positions, from Brigadier General down to patriotic service (aiding the cause, without military service).
