This morning I had a meeting at the Texenza Coffee House with Sally Hudspeth, the Registrar of the Thankful Hubbard chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, to explore the possibility of my joining the organization. The Thankful Hubbard chapter is the oldest, largest and most active of the Austin chapters. Their meeting location would be the most convenient for me.
I know that I have at least one ancestor, Patrick McGuire, who served in the revolution in Pennsylvania. Sally has already found information about him. Now we need to prove that I am a descendant in order to be eligible to join DAR.
