The Captain Henry Whitener Chapter NSDAR



National Society Daughters of the American Revolution

Captain Henry Whitener Chapter

Fredericktown, Madison County, Missouri

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.

The Daughters of the American Revolution is a service organization in which each member is a lineal descendant of a Patriot who gave aid or served as a soldier in the Revolutionary War. Information about DAR may be found at the National Society DAR web site which includes facts about DAR and membership criteria. Further information may also be found at the Missouri State Society DAR web site.

The Captain Henry Whitener Chapter NSDAR was organized on April 17, 1965 with fourteen charter members.  It is home to Daughters from Bollinger, Iron, Madison, St. Charles, Ste. Francois and Wayne Counties.

Our chapter was named for the son of the first white man in western North Carolina, Heinrich Weidner (became Whitener).   He owned 10,000 acres of land in Lincoln County, North Carolina.   Heinrich's second son, Henry Whitener, Jr. was appointed to draft men for the Battle of Kings Mountain during the Revolutionary War.  In 1804, Captain Henry Whitener, Jr. and his wife, the former Catherine Shell, their eleven children and five slaves headed westward to what is now Missouri.   They settled one and one half miles south of the present town of Marquand, Missouri.  (From The Whitener Family, Volume I, by Virginia Whitener Crowe and Fletcher Standefer Crowe).

Members are enthusiastic in their endeavors to promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism. Our chapter awards the JROTC Medal each year to a deserving cadet at Fredericktown High School, Fredericktown MO; contributes to DAR owned and operated schools, John J. Pershing Veterans Hospital at Poplar Bluff, and other DAR projects. Since our chapter was organized it has donated many books of marriage records and census records of Madison County and surrounding counties to libraries in both Madison and Wayne counties and our Missouri State Library.

Chapter Officers are: Regent, Judy Mahal; Vice Regent, Virginia Wilson; Chaplain, Thelma Sikes; Recording/Corresponding Secretary, Claudia Horne; Treasurer, Doris McMillian; Registrar, Sue Kennedy; Historian, Cecile Tuller; Librarian, Zane Seals; Parliamentarian, Willa Dean Combs.

Our meetings are held the third Monday of every month September through May with the exception of some meetings held on Saturdays to allow members who work to attend. If you are interested in attending one of our meetings, please contact us. Guests are always welcome.
