The United States Daughters of 1812 is a non-profit women’s organization based in Washington, D.C., dedicated to serving the “fraternal interests of women whose lineal ancestors served in the civil government, the army or navy of the United States, between 1784 and 1815. This time frame includes the participation in the Lewis and Clark expedition and the War of 1812. A grave marker program is sponsored by the Daughters of 1812 for qualified ancestors.

The chapter recently made donations to the restoration Project for the Barcelona Lighthouse through the National Heritage Trust; the Veteran’s Program at the Fenton Museum, and Old Fort Niagara.
