Welcome !
If you have a patriot of the American Revolution in your ancestry, we would love to have you visit and join  us. If you believe you are descended from a Revolutionary War patriot, but are not sure,  please know that  visitors to our meetings are always welcome, and we will help you to   trace your  ancestor. It is important  to note that the term “patriot” includes not only those who served in the Army, Navy, or a militia, but also  those men and women  who  provided  funds,  food, livestock, shelter, medical attention, or in any way  furthered the cause of American independence.  Our chapter will be happy to provide assistance to you in proving your descent from a patriot of the  American Revolution, and in establishing your eligibility   for DAR membership. We can also provide you  with genealogical advice if you are just beginning your family search. For assistance please contact our  chapter registrar at DARClaverackRegistrar@outlook.com.

Clifton, New Jersey
National  Society Daughters of the American Revolution
Origin of the Chapter Name Claverack
In the 1600s, the Dutch had begun to settle the Hudson Valley area.  As the population grew, they began to expand out of the New  Amsterdam area (now New York City) and into what is now New  Jersey.  As a result, many names are found in the area that have their  origination in that Dutch heritage.  The region that was Acquackanonk  was known for its vast fields of  grass which were largely sweet red and white clover.   The Dutch  phrase for a reach or field of clover was “Klauver Rachen.”  It  translates as  “Claverack.”  Michael Enoch Vreeland led a group of  settlers to the area in 1719.  In 1675, the East Jersey Legislature established four administrative  districts: Bergen, Essex, Middlesex, and Monmouth. On February 21,  1798, Acquackanonk was incorporated as one of the initial group of  104 townships in the State of New Jersey. On February 7, 1837, Passaic County was created,  incorporating the township and other portions of both Bergen County and Essex County. Over the years, portions of Acquackanonk were taken to create (or add to the territory of)  Caldwell Township (February 16, 1798; now Fairfield),  Paterson  (April 11, 1831),  Little Falls  (April 2, 1868),  Passaic village (created within the township on March 10, 1869, and  independent from the township as of March 21, 1871), Paterson (1869) and Montclair (1907).  The Township of Acquackanonk  ceased to exist on  April 26, 1917, with the incorporation  of the City of  Clifton.   In 1929, the chapter chose  “Claverack” for its  name in recognition of the locality’s name as it was  known during  the  time  of  the   Revolutionary   War.  The History of Chapter Names of the New  Jersey State DAR 1891-1985 published the  following in its excerpt for Claverack Chapter:  Claverack Chapter No. 65 Clifton, Passaic Co.     Feb.  12, 1929 Mrs.  Arthur C.V. Dangremond,   Organ. Regent Among the early settlers of New Jersey were the Dutch who established themselves  in various parts of the State.  Originally Clifton was Acquackanonk Township which  was formed in 1693, having been settled by the Dutch in 1684.  A small group of  Hollanders led by Michael Enoch Vreeland was attracted to this area in 1719 because  of the seemingly endless fields of grass.  These lovely fields were filled with sweet  red and white clover, a crop these Dutch people loved.  They received more revenue  from their crops of clover than from any other crop.  And so it was that Vreeland in  1756 named the little town “Claverack” which is derived from the Dutch word  “Klaveracker” meaning Cloverfield, as the Athenia section of Clifton was known in  Colonial days.  The name was still used for this area until the Civil War.  The chapter  was named in honor of the Cloverfields so much prized by the early Dutch settlers.

The DAR has made available an outstanding online resource.  On its website you can find the DAR Genealogical Research System (GRS). This system combines several genealogical databases and contains the names of Revolutionary War patriots, both men and women, who provided service between April 19, 1775 and November 26, 1783. The service could be military, civil, or patriotic service. You may also find in the records: 	Dates and places of birth and death 	Name(s) of wife (wives) or husband(s) and children 	rank 	Type of Service 	State where the patriot lived or served  Please be aware that not every Revolutionary War patriot is included in the GRS, only those who are the ancestors of DAR members. New patriots and new children are continuing to be established and added to these records.  A recent addition to the GRS is the ability to now order and download copies online of any application(s) you believe will help you in your own research and application.
