Who We Are


Captain Daniel Vliet was born at Six Mile Run, now Franklin Park, Somerset County, New Jersey. He married Geertuitje Springsteen on 16 November 1746 at age 20 and later moved to Bethlehem Township, Hunterdon County, New Jersey, settling along the Musconetcong River near Bloomsbury and West Portal.

He served in the Revolutionary War militia for multiple terms and was captain of a company in the Second Regiment, Hunterdon County militia. He also served as captain under Colonel Mark Thompson, First Regiment, Sussex County militia, for a term. At least two of his sons served under him, namely, David and Daniel, Jr. Other sons who also participated in the war included John, Jasper, William, and Garret. A daughter, Margaret Vliet Warne, known affectionately as "Peggy Warne," provided patriotic service.

Our goals as members of the Captain Daniel Vliet Chapter, NSDAR, are to actively participate in the following:

  • Welcome new members and mentor and support them into chapter activities
  • Emphasize and encourage hospitality and friendliness in all activities
  • Actively work with the community to support and promote the goals of the DAR
