  10. http://www.njssar.org/ The New Jersey Society was organized on March 7, 1889 as the New Jersey Society "Sons of the Revolution" in Newark, NJ. They were, then, only a branch of the New York Society of the "Sons of the Revolution," and after much consideration these gentlemen decided to have a Society of their own in New Jersey. They voted unanimously to change the title of the New Jersey Society of the "Sons of the Revolution," to that of the New Jersey Society of the Sons of the American Revolution. Other states with great zeal took up a proposition sent out from New Jersey, calling for a congress to organize a National Society. In thirty-three states, they formed Societies and elected delegates to discuss and act upon this proposition. In answer to this call of New Jersey, the delegates of the Societies of the different states gathered at Fraunces Tavern, April 30, 1889. This was the CENTENNIAL for the Inauguration of George Washington as the First President of the United States of America in 1789. They formed the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution. SAR member Number 1 is William Osborn McDowell of New Jersey is credited with being the founder of the SAR. He is also credited as being one of the people who later helped form the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) in 1890. The first two hundred members of the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution are from this first New Jersey Society and the first SAR chapter formed was in Elizabethtown on July 4, 1893.

  11. https://isa4817group.wixsite.com/williammaclaysar In late April of 1789, Sen. William Maclay of Sunbury, Pennsylvania, began his invaluable diary. Except for a few scattered notes taken by other senators and Vice President Adams, this diary is the only source of the debates on the Senate floor. Maclay, who had supported the ratification of the Constitution, quickly became an opponent of most of the Federalist agenda and has been classified as the first Jeffersonian Republican. His caustic, sometimes witty, and generally accurate diary stands just behind James Madison's notes from the Federal Convention as the most important journal in American political and constitutional history. Fortunately it has survived virtually intact. View full record

  21. http://www.motherbedford.com/FrontierPatriots.htm The Frontier Patriots Chapter is based in Blair County, Pennsylvania, but it's scope is much greater than simply the one, single county. The Frontier Patriots Chapter represents a substantial portion of the region that had been erected as Bedford County in the year 1771. The present-day counties of Bedford, Blair, Fulton and Huntingdon are included in the region encompassed by the Frontier Patriots Chapter. (The remainder of the region that was part of Old-Bedford County, which includes the present-day counties of Cambria and Somerset, is represented by the Somerset-Cambria Chapter.) And recently, the Clearfield Chapter was dissolved, and its members accepted into the Blair County (now Frontier Patriots) Chapter. View full record
  22. https://www.erie-sar.org/ Because Northwest Pennsylvania was not opened to settlement until 1795, no revolutionary patriots were originally from Erie County. However, Erie County is home to the graves of 212 patriots who moved here after the Revolution. A list of these Patriot graves and cemeteries can be found on the Pennsylvania SAR state web site at Burials in Erie County. The Erie Chapter published a book, Revolutionary Patriots in Erie County, PA., in 1992. It contains information on each Patriot, photos of the headstone, sources, and location of the graves. Although the book is out of print, libraries should have reference copies available. From time to time used copies come up for sale; try the Erie County Historical Society gift shop/book store or the Erie Book Store. If you are out of town and need a photo-copy of a page from the book, contact us and we'll try to accommodate you. View full record
