Nathan Perry Chapter, Lorain, Ohio

Nathan Perry Chapter was organized by Mrs. Theodore Oehlke. It was the 65th chapter in Ohio state as well as being the largest with 85 charter members. The chapter also had several Real Granddaughters of the American Revolution.

The chapter was named after Major Nathan Perry, a Revolutionary Soldier who came to Ohio with Cleaveland's surveying party to purchase land in the Lorain area. His son, Nathan Perry, became a first settler of Lorain, Ohio, by establishing a trading post in 1807.

Our chapter has been part of the Lorain Memorial Association Service since 1931 and presents a JROTC Medal to outstanding cadets at Lorain Admiral King, Southview, and Grafton high schools. Forty-two lineage books have been donated to the Lorain Public Library Genealogy Department. The chapter also helped to found the Tamassee DAR School.
