Daughters of the American Revolution
* Purpose *

To perpetuate the memory and spirit of the men and women who achieved American Independence; to promote the development of an enlightened public opinion; and to foster patriotic citizenship; these are the objects of our Society, Daughters of the American Revolution.

About Us:

William White Chapter was organized in March of 1950 by Augusta E. White. At that time Miss White was a lady of 75 years of age. She had been a DAR member since 1918. She felt it was time there was a chapter in rural northwest Missouri. Organizing a chapter is not an easy project but she persevered and succeeded. Miss White lived to see William White become a vibrant active chapter. She attained the age of 97 years and William White Chapter is now well over 50 years of age. Visit chapter history page for more information.

Ann Townsend Wilsonís father, John Townsend, was a Revolutionary soldier in Virginia. He died August 4, 1834, in Adair County, KY. Ann, her husband, Isaac Wilson and children moved first to Indiana and then to Atchison County in 1844. They settled at Linden, MO, which at that time was the county seat of Atchison County. Ann died on December 24, 1851. William White Chapter placed a bronze marker on Annís grave in November of 1955.
