Sedalia DAR

The Osage Chapter NSDAR was organized on February 26, 1898. The name "Osage" was chosen to honor the Native American tribe which once lived in the area of Missouri where Sedalia is located. The Osage were a very proud and powerful tribe admired for their fierce warriors and excellent hunters. The men were noted as being very tall. The Osage lived in semipermanent villages, and they had distinctive pottery and stone tool technology. Osage women excelled in the raising of corn, beans, and pumpkins. They also butchered and prepared the meat after a hunt, then tanned the hides. Today, the Osage Nation is mainly located in Osage County, Oklahoma. Its headquarters is in the town of Pawhuska.

Osage Chapter NSDAR meetings are usually held at 9:30 a.m. on the third Saturday of each month, September through June. We do not meet during the month of January. Meetings include a program of patriotic, educational, or historical interest.

Please contact our regent, Ruthann Alexander, if you are interested in joining the DAR and would like to attend one of our meetings. Visitors are welcome. You can visit the DAR Genealogical Research System to discover if your ancestor is a recognized Revolutionary War patriot. We will be happy to assist you in proving your lineage to your Revolutionary War patriot.
