Membership in this prestigious organization was approved only after their professional genealogists validated our lineage all the way back to Richard Nelson of Charles County, MD. He was a planter who in 1689 owned 330 acres of land on Mattawoman Creek near current-day Marbury, MD. His granddaughter, Charity Warden, married William Mills (son of Robert of Fairfax County, VA). A complete lineage chart is included in our new book. You can also view it by going here.
Any female descendant of Richard Nelson is eligible to join the Colonial Dames, based on my approved application. My member number is 37134. Let me know if you are interested in joining. There is a local chapter near to you.
