Welcome to the Princess Sehoy Chapter, NSDAR webpage

We hope you will enjoy your visit

The DAR was founded in 1890 and is headquartered in Washington, D.C. It is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women's service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America's future through better education for children.

DAR members volunteer millions of service hours annually in their local communities -- including supporting active duty military personnel, veterans and veteran patients, awarding thousands of dollars in scholarships and financial aid each year to students, and supporting schools for underserved children with annual donations exceeding one million dollars.

As one of the most inclusive genealogical societies in the country, DAR boasts 177,000 members in 3,000 chapters across the United States and internationally. Any woman 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution is eligible for membership.

The Princess Sehoy Chapter was organized on June 19, 1934, at Woodward, Alabama. The chapter was named for American Indian Princess Sehoy of the Muskogee Nation, Tribe of the Wind. She married Captain Marchand, a Frenchman who was Commandant of Fort Toulouse in Alabama, in the early 1700s. Her early descendants played a significant part in American history.
