(Franklin, GA) — At a recent chapter meeting, two members of the James Stewart Chapter, NSDAR, received Certificates of Award for 10 years of service to the community and the NSDAR.

Marifaythe Whitley and Carla Brown received their certificates from DAR National headquarters in Washington, DC.

Signed by Denise VanBuren, NSDAR President General, the certificates represent thousands of hours of volunteer work for our county and throughout the country. These two dedicated women support our county veteran projects and so much more.

Webster’s online dictionary defines the word “Patriot.” A patriot is “one who loves and supports his or her country.” With this definition, there must be thousands of patriots here in Heard County.

In less than five short years, we will be celebrating the 250th birthday of our country.

We have started a new year and we are looking for new projects within the county and our organization. Honoring our patriot ancestors has already began. Did you know that there are Revolutionary patriots buried right here in Heard County?

We are in the beginning stages of locating and marking these graves for future generations. Don’t miss out on your chance to make an impact on our local history.

Not all patriots were soldiers in the Revolutionary War. Many civilians provided support and furnished supplies to the Continental Army with the risk of imprisonment or losing their lands.  Consider joining the NSDAR.

Membership is open to any woman over 18 years of age that can prove that she is of direct lineal descent from a patriot of the Revolutionary War.

We have access to millions of records and can help you find your Revolutionary patriot.
