    My mother, Genevieve McCabe, was a member and officer. She died last June. I want to get her the DAR grave marker. How do I reach somebody who has this information? My mother was a member of the Shatemuc Chapter in Rockland County in New York State. She was a regent twice. Her ancestor is Luther Hall. Lenora

    • Patricia Thames says:

      You should contact the current Reagent from this chapter and they would put the marker on her headstone from the chapter.

    Dear Lenora,
    I am so very sorry that I didn’t see this before now! If you have not marked your Mother’s grave, please contact me! This is something we love to do – and especially for one who was loved as much as your Mother was. Marthase@aol.com

    My Great Grandmother was a member of the Rockland County New York Chapter along with her Daughter. Her name was Minnie McCloud-Frederick and Her daughter was Gladys Frederick-Wenzel. I need to get my Grandmothers Registration number to have my lineage verified as I am trying to become a member of the S.A.R. How or who can I contact to get this information?

    I have yet to find a DAR symbol in my cemetery research. I guess there are none here in my area of Florida. Love the site.
