If you are related to these men and women we would love to have you join us, or use us as a resource -- DAR has great family history information available! These men and women served in the military during the revolution or assisted in the fight for independence. Any woman age 18 or older who can prove a lineal, blood relationship with a revolutionary war patriot is eligible for membership in our chapter or any DAR chapter. As you can see, some patriots do not have a spouse listed or just a first name. While you have to prove your relationship in each generation, DAR recognizes the limitations of 200 year old records, and will help with your paperwork. Barbara Karger ( is our registrar, a genealogical guru.

A marker for the grave of patriot Joel Harrell who died in Enfield. As you can see, our members descend from patriots who served from and in all the states. Members typically join their closest chapter, but may wish to affiliate with organizations with historic conntections to their families. I note that we have one female patriot, Hannah DeHart or De Hart, who provided supplies during the revolution in Botetourt County, VA. It looks like she applied for repayment in 1785. We don't seem to have a proven birth name for her, but her husband was Simon DeHart or De Hart.

DAR members feel a connection to the men and women whose final resting place is in their geographical area and mark and preserve their graves. However, DAR supports all veterans through our support of VA hospitals and rehab centers, honor flight programs, and work with American Legion and VFW posts.
