Our Patriots

Our Lexington Chapter NSDAR members are certified descendants of these patriots whose service helped establish American independence. If you recognize a name from your own ancestry and would like to explore the genealogy, please contact us. We may be able to help!

All chapter members can trace their direct ancestry to a person who served the cause of the American Revolution. These were people who served as soldiers, signed loyalty oaths, gave supplies, sewed clothing, hid armaments, helped organize the new government, kept towns running, beat the drums, rallied the people, fed the troops, and a myriad of other things that made the struggle for freedom a success.

The Lexington Chapter NSDAR members descend from patriots including twelve of the original thirteen colonies which engaged in the Revolutionary War. Only Delaware is missing. Can you fill in our gap?

Here is a list of our documented patriots showing their rank or type of service and the state where they served.
