NSDAR JUNIOR SPOTLIGHT:
Our gifted Melanie Richardson is waiting
for approval for 13 additional Patriots

University of Florida honor graduate and talented Carnegie Hall piano artist, Melanie Richardson joined the Commodore John Barry Chapter of NSDAR in May of 2019 as a descendant of Ezra Starr. She has since submitted 13 supplementals and is awaiting DAR approval. These additional Revolutionarty War ancestors are: Daniel Starr, David Gould, William Williams, Abel Marsch, Robert Bramble, Ebenezer Minor, Dr. Titus Hull, Dr. William Plunkett, Capt. George Codwise, Hartman Van Deusen, Johannes Van Deusen, James Claghorn, and John Scott. This will bring her to a total of 14 Patriots. Her mother, Linda, is also a Daughter.

When Melanie became a member of CJB Chapter in May of 2019, she was still a senior at University of Florida working on her Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering and Bachelor of Music degree with a Certificate in Piano Performance. Stephanie mentioned her wish for a DAR sash for her graduation gown. CJB Registrar, Bonnie Zimmer, found that these did not exist so she had one designed and made for her. Melanie proudly wears it in the above photo. Congratulations Melanie.
