As one of the most inclusive genealogical societies in the country, DAR boasts 165,000 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.

Our Chapter
David Hudson The David Hudson Chapter, organized on April 15, 1972, is named after the son of Revolutionary War Patriot, David Hudson, Sr. In the spring of 1799, David Hudson Jr. led a settlement party west from his home in Goshen, Connecticut, reaching the new land on June 26, 1799.  In 1802, the town was named "Hudson" in honor of its founder, who remained a resident until his death in 1836.  In 1806, David Hudson built a frame house along the main road north of the center of town.  The house, at 318 North Main Street, is the oldest standing structure built in what is now Summit County.
