Listed on this page are the patriot ancestors of the current members of the Indian Peaks Chapter, NSDAR. Revolutionary War patriots include:

  • signers of the Declaration of Independence
  • members of local and state militias
  • members of the Continental Army or Continental Navy
  • men and women who rendered other types of aid to the cause of independence
  • those taking oaths of loyalty.
  • Other included patriots are foreign soldiers who served the cause of American independence and Spanish soldiers serving in the presidios at Santa Fe, El Paso, and New Orleans.
  • With a few exceptions, 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.
