Real Daughters Historic Markers


"real daughters"

All of these women died before DAR was founded, so each can be considered a "real daughter." They didn't have the opportunity to join the DAR.

In August 1928, the grave was located and a marker placed on the grave of Mrs. Parizade Fiske Payne, daughter of Revolutionary War patriot, James Fiske. She was buried in Brooklyn Memorial Cemetery, Brooklyn, Iowa.

Deborah Hays and Elizabeth Hays Hann were daughters of Joseph Hays, a patriot of the Revolutionary War. Deborah Hays, is buried in Hazelwood Cemetery. Her grave is marked with a Real Daughter plaque. Her sister, Elizabeth Hays Hann, buried in Chester Cemetery, Poweshiek County, Iowa, had a Real Daughter plaque placed on her grave in October 1924.

Jane Van Kueren Meridith is buried in Ivy Hill Cemetery, Malcom.

Martha Montgomery Allen, daughter of John and Susanna (Porter) Montgomery, is buried in Boswell-Harper Pioneer Cemetery, Barnes City.  Her grave was marked by Montezuma Chapter.

In 1934, a marker was placed for Mary Jane Ludwick, who is buried at United Brethren Cemetery, near Newburg, Iowa.
