Our Patriot Ancestors

Discovered through research, we honor these Patriots with proven service during the American Revolutionary War who are direct ancestors of Linares Chapter, NSDAR, members.  As honored in William Tyler Page's "American's Creed," these brave Americans "sacrificed their lives and fortunes" to establish a government "upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity." 

Patriots are grouped by state of service and then listed alphabetically by last name. Scroll down to see whether you share an ancestor with one of our members! We hope these names help others in their quest to prove family lineage and their application to the DAR.

 
Feel free to explore the DAR's free public Genealogical Research System (GRS) to find  your Patriot ancestor!

In 2015, Linares Chapter, NSDAR, published a book of stories about member Patriots. A copy of the book was donated to the downtown San Diego Public Library.
