The Sons of the American Revolution Three Rivers Chapter is seeking more members. Membership is open to male descendants of people who served in the Revolutionary War, or who contributed to establishing the independence of the United States.
A very high percentage of people in this area are descendants of these patriots. What most people don’t realize is that most property in this region was deeded to patriots as a land grant for their service. The patriots moved here and started families that through the years have stayed here.
The S.A.R. knows that people that served in the revolution; the part you do is provide proof that your ancestor is one of the people.
The Three River Chapters will hold a public meeting at 11:30 a.m., March 17, at the Graham Memorial Presbyterian Church in Whitesburg, where people can find out if their ancestor is a patriot.
For more information, call Carl Banks at 634-3554.
