Bio and Links
Bio Photo The Arrowhead Valley Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution was organized on December 7, 2002, from the Arrowhead and San Bernardino, California chapters. Both chapters had long and illustrious histories.
The Arrowhead Chapter was organized on April 19, 1917, the anniversary of the Battle of Lexington and the "shot heard round the world." The organizing regent was Mrs. Irving Davis.
The San Bernardino Chapter was organized soon after, on March 20, 1920, with Mrs. Anna Boley Garner as organizing regent.
These two venerable chapters merged December 7, 2002 to form a very dynamic chapter.
As you will notice, many of the entries on Find-A-Grave include members from all three of the chapters and are referred to as being a former member of Arrowhead Valley Chapter. That is because we wish to honor all three chapters of "our former members".
We are what they were.
We are grateful to those of you who created their memorials and were willing to transfer them to us when we started our "Remember Our Members" project.
Entries submitted to FindAGrave DO NOT constitute proof of lineage. It is our hope that our research of census records, newspaper articles, birth, marriage and death certificates, and cemetery records will help lead others to the Revolutionary War Patriot in their family.
The NSDAR will welcome you!

Colonel Matthew Dill
I saw the note you left on the memorial for Matthew Dill #18592832 . I just wanted to let you know that page is a duplicate memorial. I have asked Find a Grave to fix the problem. The correct page with the correct burial information is #15067023. I am trying to get the rest of the family linked to this page. Thanks, Nicole (Dill descendant and future DAR member:-)

Taking the photo was my pleasure. 'My' Hawkins, (Zadock) were in Connecticut in the 1700's. Was Florence from that line and I didn't know about her ? At any rate, was my pleasure.

RE: Mary (Wood) Drake 89282590
I will let you know when I hear from her. This tree or record does not come up for me. What is the tree name and the name of the source citation for her death?

RE: Richard Drake #89282652

I have contacted the original creator of these memorials. I do not have proof except a pensioners record for Richard. Mary and Richard are my 5x great grandparents and I have researched them. They are listed in my Drake Tree. I can see that on the 1830 census there is only one elder listed. I wish I had a picture and will request one but it is unknown to me if there is a marker or if it's legible. I hope to go to the cemetery soon but I live in another state. I would very much like to hear what information you have about them. Do you have a record for her death? I would love your member to contact me on how you're related and discuss this family. I recently did my DNA as well.

Happy searching,

Webner in Graceland
I visited the Webner lot in Graceland Cemetery, Chicago. Sadly, there are only three headstones of which only Mary Ceperle Webner is readable. All are marble, eroded by city pollution with lichens as well. They have Webner across the top which is very readable, but first names and dates on the front are not. I might guess the three from left to right would be John, Mary, then Mary Ceperle in the order they died with Adelaide and George not marked. Mary Ceperle is the stone on the right. I recommend that you purchase a copy of the lot card from the cemetery for $5.00 which would show you where each Webner is located. Regards, Bob Lerch

RE: Emans - Ostrander
Hi! You sent me such a nice complimentary message, but I'm afraid I'm going to disappoint your organization.

I actually walked the entire Roseville Cemetery, and any photo requests I did not fulfill (1) I did not find a grave marker, (2) I missed seeing the grave, (3) a grave marker has never existed or no longer exists or (4) the grave marker is no longer readable. All of my efforts were focused on burials before 1980.

The remaining Ostrander photo requests should be next to Romine and Julia Ostrander whose photos I did post. Unfortunately I did not know that on the day I took the photos.

Finally, I live more than 200 miles away, and my visit was a one-time effort to clear up as many unfulfilled photo requests at Roseville as I could. I hope that someone else is able to assist in finding the rest of the graves you are looking to find at the cemetery.

Happy 4th of July to you and the rest of your organization!

Romine Ostrander
Hi! Photos posted for him.

Also there:

Julia Young Ostrander, 1846 - 1908

If you add a photo request for her I will post the photos that I took.

Best wishes for a great day! Ace
