Our Revolutionary War Patriots

Each of the Margaret Gale Thornton Chapter’s members joined the National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution through proving lineage back to a Revolutionary War Patriot. DAR defines a “Patriot” as one who provided service or direct assistance in achieving America’s independence.
 
To honor these Patriots, many of them have been ‘presented’ at a monthly meeting.  As reports are given or information is gathered on each Patriot, it is linked to the Patriots listed below. Click on the highlighted Patriots to review their service and information.
