​ With over 100 years of membership these are just a few of our members Founders & Patriots

These are our Ancestors who inspired us to become members of DFPA.  Members of this chapter that live in the New England area are still able to see glimpses of Colonial America around us.  The homes of the Revolutionary era and the significance of the names of the streets and towns we live in are direct ties to America's history.  We can only imagine the struggles and hardships our founder's and their families faced though harsh winters, muggy summers and granite gardens. 

These brave men understood the concept of freedom and with selfless dedication fought to carve out a new life for their families, under the principles of individual liberty and freedom from tyranny.  It is our duty to honor these men by keeping their legacy in our thoughts and to introduce future generations to America's history.
