Catherine Schuyler Chapter

National Society Daughters of the American Revolution

Belmont-Allegany, New York

 

 

The Catherine Schuyler Chapter, NSDAR, was organized in 1897 in Belmont, Allegany County, New York.

Catherine Schuyler was born in 1734, the daughter of Colonel John Van Rensselaer. She was married in 1755 to Captain Phillip Schuyler, who became a Major General in the Revolutionary War. Of their fourteen children, the eldest daughter, Angelica, became the mother of Phillip Church, who named the town of Angelica for her. The second daughter, Elizabeth, married Alexander Hamilton. A true patriot and a devoted wife and mother, Catherine Schuyler died in 1803, having seen the cause of independence established.

The chapter has 50 members and meets May through October on the third Thursday of the month.
