Historical Note

The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) was founded on October 11, 1890 by women who desired to express their patriotic feelings and to perpetuate the memory of ancestors who fought to make this country free and independent. The Ann Rogers Clark Chapter of Jeffersonville, Indiana was established on January 15, 1901 with twenty charter members. The chapter was named in honor of the mother of General George Rogers Clark and Mrs. Nathan (Fannie) Sparks served as the group's first regent.
