Dunaway SAR Chapter forms in Jackson County
An event took place in Jackson County yesterday that does not happen very often anywhere in the country, the formation of a new chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution. The new William Dunaway Chapter of the SAR is the first chapter formed in Florida since the Emerald Coast Chapter was formed nearly twenty years ago.
The new chapter is the result of decades of work by Fletcher, Harry ("Hap") and Robert ("Kenny") Dunaway and is named in honor of their ancestor, William Dunaway. He served in the 5th Virginia Regiment during the American Revolution and fought during the Yorktown Campaign and also served under Col. Elijah Clarke in Georgia during the final major actions of the American Revolution.
If you live in the Jackson County area, had an ancestor who served during the American Revolution, and would like more information on joining the new chapter, feel free to contact me and I'll be glad to put you in touch with them. You can reach me by following this link: www.twoeggfla.com/contactus.
