Missouri Map Showing Kahoka and Clark County

Picture of William ClarkChapter History.  Clark County, Missouri, is the upper most northeast county in the state and is bordered by Iowa, Illinois, and the Mississippi River. Its seat is Kahoka. The county was named after William Clark, co-leader of the famous Lewis and Clark Expedition of 1804-1806. In 1813 William Clark was appointed governor of the Missouri Territory and remained in that position until 1821 when Missouri became a state. When our DAR chapter was organized on January 27, 1913, the charter members chose to name the chapter after our county and the illustrious William Clark.

Activities.  During our history as a DAR chapter, Clark County Chapter members have worked hard to preserve chapter and county history. We marked the graves of two Revolutionary War patriots: George Reading, buried in the Wolf Cemetery who died August 4, 1846, and J.S. Thompson, buried in the Benning-Anthony Cemetery near Athens, Missouri. The chapter also marked Fort Pike and has recently relocated the marker. Our chapter gives DAR awards in the area schools and participates in patriotic events in our community. We donate flags to various schools, businesses, and organizations when needed. We are continuously "Showing DAR in Missouri" as we follow the DAR goals of patriotism, education, and historical preservation.

Meetings.  Our meetings are held on the fourth Saturday of each month with the exception of August and January. Each regular meeting includes a program on patriotism, education, historical preservation, environment, or women's issues. Please contact us if you are interested in joining DAR and would like to attend one of our meetings. Visitors are welcome. We are always happy to assist a prospective member in researching her patriot. You can visit the DAR Genealogical Research System which will let you know if your ancestor is a DAR recognized Revolutionary War patriot.
