The National Society United States Daughters of 1812 was organized on January 8, 1892, on the anniversary of the Battle of New Orleans.  The primary purposes of the Society are to promote patriotism, to preserve and increase knowledge of the history of the American people, by preserving documents and relics, marking historic spots, recording family histories and traditions, celebrating patriotic anniversaries, teaching and emphasizing the heroic deeds of the civil, military and naval life of those who molded this government between the close of the American Revolution and the close of the War of 1812, from 1784 to 1815, inclusive, and to maintain, at National Headquarters in Washington, D.C., a museum and library of memorabilia of the 1784-1815 period.

 

Women eighteen years of age and over are eligible for membership, providing that they can satisfactorily document their lineal descent from an ancestor who rendered military, naval or civil service between the close of the American Revolutionary War  and the close of the War of 1812 (1784-1815).  Additional information on our organization and its membership application requirements can be found on our National Society's web site.

 

Lucas Sullivant Chapter was organized in 1929.  From its early days, the chapter took an interest in cleaning the old Franklinton Cemetery, where Lucas Sullivant was originally buried.  (His family later had him disinterred for burial in Greenlawn Cemetery).  The chapter erected a stone fence at Franklinton cemetery, placed bronze markers at both Franklinton and Greenlawn cemeteries, and, together with the Colonial Dames of America, planted Arbor Day trees in memory of Sullivant and Perry's victory on Lake Erie.   One of our current projects is the identification and grave location of War of 1812 veterans who were buried within Franklin County, Ohio.

 

For membership inquiries and additional information on our chapter, please contact our chapter registrar.
