Our Patriot Ancestors


Our membership reflects the heritage of more than 150 Revolutionary War patriots, and below, by state, we share with you the names of these brave individuals.


There are advantages to having an ancestor who helped America win its independence, beyond just being able to stand a little taller on the Fourth of July.  You can qualify for membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) or its male counterpart, the Sons of the American Revolution. Even if you do not  join, you can tap the genealogy information the DAR has been collecting since 1890 - a process that has become much easier with the launch of three interconnected databases on the DAR’s national website.


The DAR Genealogical Research System can help you in your genealogy research as well as assist you with the DAR membership process.  The system is a free resource that includes lineage information that is cross-referenced between Revolutionary War patriots and descendants.  You can read about the new DAR Genealogical Research System by visiting http://www.dar.org/national-society/genealogy
