Mary Chesney Chapter National Society Daughters of the American Revolution was organized as the 66th chapter in the state of Ohio on October 23, 1916 at the home of Mrs. Edward Snyder located on Mahoning Avenue in Warren, Ohio. The chapter was named by Mrs. H.C. Baldwin in honor of her grandmother, Mary Davidson Chesney. Mary was born on December 22, 1780 to Scotch-Irish parents whose families had originally settled about 1720 in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. Several members of the family were soldiers in the American Revolution. Maryís family moved to Warren in 1799. The original Davidson home was located on the bank of the Mahoning River. Samuel P. Chesney, Maryís future husband, arrived in Warren in 1803. They married in 1806. Mary and her family are recorded in the first fifty years of Warrenís history.
