Jeremiah Clark Chapter:

The Jeremiah Clark Chapter is a chapter of the Michigan Society of the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR). The chapter was established in December 2022, after the idea to create a chapter in the Clarkston/Waterford area was introduced by Rod Wilson and David Suzor. The first meeting to discuss the formation of the chapter was held in October 2022, and the application for charter was signed during a meeting in December of the same year.

At the charter signing meeting on December 20, 2022, Charlotte Cooper gave a genealogical history of the Jeremiah Clark family during the meeting. Members in attendance voted unanimously to choose the name Jeremiah Clark Chapter, in honor of the Clark family, after which Clarkston is named.

After the chapter's approval for charter on February 18, 2023, the officers were approved at a chapter meeting on February 21, 2023. The officers include David Suzor as President, Mick Packard as Vice President, Doug Brown as Treasurer, Mike Packard as Secretary, Mike Packard and Ken Loudy as Registrar/Genealogists, Luke Frye as Trustee, Grant Goulet as Public Relations, and Dave Decker as Historian.

The Jeremiah Clark Chapter is dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and supporting better education for the nation's youth, as is the mission of the SAR. The chapter will organize events and activities in line with these objectives, including historical research, community service, and educational programs.

Historic Goals:

The Jeremiah Clark chapter supports genealogical research and presentations that explore the history and people of the period from 1750 to 1800. The National SAR Magazine provides authoritative descriptions of historical events and is considered a valuable archival resource. In 1993, the Revolutionary War Graves Committee published information on 54,000 grave sites of patriots in the SAR Revolutionary War Graves Register. This list has since expanded to include a total of 140,000 names and locations. Additionally, the Patriot Index Committee is publishing information on 732,000 patriots and their descendants.
