I've recently started the long process of joining the DAR and am collecting the necessary proofs. I'm joining through a female ancestor, Ann(e) Coles Mott who nursed the sick and injured American soldiers at Sugar House in NYC. If you think we're related or have any proofs or information to share with me, please contact me - every little bit helps!
