Daughters of the American Revolution tomorrow

26 April 2013 Leave a comment

Tomorrow, my local Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) chapter is having a Membership Workshop for prospective members, and I’m going to go. I’m trying to get a few possible Revolutionary War links sorted out, and I found one that I hadn’t found before:

From Massachusetts soldiers and sailors of the revolutionary war, vol 14, p 137.

He was the son of Jabez Sherman and Jedidah Hawes.  He married Elizabeth Claghorn.  They lived in Dartmouth, MA and Williamstown, MA.

I’m interested to see what information DAR needs for membership–what proof they need, what they accept, etc.


William and Ursula Hawes of Solihull

Anyone who is researching the Hawes family has most likely read Edmond Hawes of Yarmouth, Massachusetts, by James William Hawes. I came across an article while browsing back issues of the NEGHS Register this evening: Reinterpreting the Vital Dates of WilliamB Hawes and His Wife Ursula from Their Memorial Brass (by John C. Brandon). It’s a great article regarding alternate reading the ages/birth dates for William Hawes and his wife Ursula Colles.

Also in the footnotes is a link to a blog that will be of interest to those researching: one entry deals with the St. Alphege Church (where the brass memorial is found) and the other deals with Hillfield Hall (the manor built by William Hawes). There are some great photos.
