Columbus is the second group after Cincinnati to offer a history of an ancestor. Other town committees will follow. The NSCDA is bound by the Covenant of 1908 which requires that each member coming into The Society have an ancestor from one of the original thirteen colonies. Each Dame provides a history of her ancestor. It is our intention to publish as many of these histories as we can. Consider them glimpses of those people who built the colonies as they moved toward the Revolution.
Eventually, we will have all the Columbus Dames' news and offerings. But we are beginning with a history submitted by Meredith Patton. It is a vignette of her ancestor (and our first female ancestor) Cecily Reynolds of colonial Jamestown Virginia. You can find it on the "Our Colonial Ancestors" page. Click here
The Semi-Annual Meeting of the Society occurred in Gambier under the guiding hand of Dames Jan Hoffmann and Anne Robinson and with the assistance of their committee and volunteers. It is not an easy to plan meetings and bring Dames together from across the state. We thank these Dames so much for their help and leadership. Jan Hoffman and Anne Robinson, our two wonderful Dames, had planned glorious tours, lunches, and dinners on the historic campus of Kenyon. The meeting itself could not have been accomplished without the hard work of these two Gambier Dames. Joining us in Gambier was our new Vice-President of Region II who came to get to know us. Louise Tausche was a delightful addition to our group at Gambier. Melanie was honored for her six years as National Vice-President. Barbara Harding told us it “was one of our best meetings,” and if so, it was only because of Jan and Anne who delighted us at every turn.
