January 4th Meeting

DAR and Lineage Societies
by Jerre Robertson
 

Roslyn Heights, an elegant Queen Anne style mansion, located in Boonville, Missouri, serves as the Missouri State Society’ Daughters of the American Revolution headquarters. The home, built by Wilbur T. and Rhoda Stephens Johnson in 1895, was purchased by the Missouri State Society DAR in 1983, and was featured in the November 2012 issue of  Missouri Life  magazine, as one of the last of the “Main Street Mansions.”

Jerre Robertson, who serves as one of several docents at Roslyn Heights Annual Christmas Open House, will present the history of the beautiful mansion, discuss the historic restoration of the home and tell about how today's Missouri Daughters celebrate events and have established their own annual traditions at the historic property. 

Jerre Robertson joined NSDAR in 2009 as a member of the Columbian Chapter NSDAR, Columbia, MO.  After moving to Platte County, MO in 2010, Jerre transferred her membership to the Alexander Doniphan Chapter NSDAR, Liberty, MO.  She has served her chapter as Regent, Treasurer and chairman of various committee.

 Jerre is currently serving as State Organizing Secretary, MSSDAR. She is also a member of both the Missouri Society Sons of the American Revolution Auxiliary and William C. Corum Chapter NSSAR Auxiliary, currently serving as chapter President.
