Our Patriot Ancestors

Listed on this page are the patriot ancestors of the current members of the Peace Pipe Chapter, NSDAR. American Revolutionary War patriots included Signers of the Declaration of Independence, members of local and state militia‚Äôs who rendered other types of aid to the cause of independence, and those taking oaths of loyalty. Military service began with the Battle of Lexington (April 19, 1775) and ended when the British evacuated New York (November 26, 1783). Patriots may have also provided civil service, conducting public business in the newly formed American States. If you have information that one of your ancestors may have aided the cause of freedom during the American Revolution, 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 visit our contact us page.
