American Revolutionary War

The DAR is deeply rooted in our country's history. Our mission is to preserve the history of our country and Patriots.


Listed below are the Patriot ancestors, the state served, and the ancestor number of the members of Dewalt Mechlin Chapter, NSDAR. American Revolutionary War Patriots include signers of the Declaration of Independence, members of local and state militias, members of the Continental Army or Continental Navy, men and women who rendered other types of aid to the cause of independence, and those taking oaths of loyalty. With a few exceptions, military service began with the Battle of Lexington (19 April 1775) and ended when the British evacuated New York (26 November 1783). Patriots may have also provided civil service, conducting public business in the newly formed American states. For a list of acceptable service click here.

The DAR Genealogical Research System (GRS) combines several databases of DAR membership information into a single search interface. The Patriot database of the GRS includes records of American Revolutionary War Patriots, listed by name and ancestor number. Most of the data is taken from verified membership and supplemental applications.

If you have information that one of your ancestors may have aided the cause of freedom during the American Revolutionary War, we may be able to help you establish your genealogical line for DAR membership. If you are interested in documenting your lineage and joining our chapter, or have any questions, please contact us.
