DAR SAR News
I periodically get queries about
joining the DAR or SAR. To become a member, you must show that
your ancestor aided the cause of the American Revolution. This
could be by serving in the Army or in the militia or by selling wheat
to the Continental Army, for example. Just recently it was
discovered that the statutes in MD and VA that enacted the 1783 tax
stated that the tax would help pay for supplies that the State was
required to furnish. In Pennsylvania, everyone on the supply tax lists,
which are published in the PA Archives and free at Fold3, is eligible.
This means that many more people will be eligible to join.
Nearly all of the 1783 Virginia tax lists survived and are
available on microfilm from the LDS library.

1820 New Jersey Court Case for Lewis Peter Clover. Peter
Clover, eldest son of John Peter Clover, gave a long deposition for
this case. It strongly suggests that there is a kinship between
them. Descendants of John Peter Clover have had their DNA tested.
But no one from the family of Lewis Peter Clover of New York City
has been tested. If this is your family, contact me and we will
try to track down a donor. The court case does not prove a
