My Great Aunt Dorothy Hupp Ward was a member of trhe DAR and I am trying to find out the information that she used so that I can join the SAR. The ancestor that we share in common is Capt. James Archer from Virginia. He served in Captain David Owens Company of Frontier Rangers in 1776 as ensign, then succeeded him as Captain. James Archer's name appears in War Department Records showing that he served the the Revolutionary War as a Lieutenant with his name mentioned on a return from Monongalia County, Virginia for the expedition to the Indian Country". He also served as a Captain in the First Battalion Pennsylvania Militia in Washington County in 1782.
I would love to validate that she was a member and find out what I would need to do next.
Thank you very much for your help!
