Greetings from the DC Society SAR! I am in the Short Hills area for work the next year and hoping to meet some SAR compatriots from the First Mountain Chapter. Please let me know when your next meeting or event is scheduled and how I might join. Many thanks, John Stonesifer

I'm wondering where you got your information on where Philip Sarvent/Serven was born. His father Philip E. came from Holland but according to church records his children were born here. I am a direct descendant of Philip E. Serven and Katrina Stypers.

How do we get a password for the members board?

I'm a new member and would like to attend the meetings. Do we need to make reservations for the ones at Pal's Cabin or do we just show up? Are meetings at the same time/day each month or every other month? Since I officially certified on November 8 I was told my dues were paid through 2013. Does that include chapter dues and , if not, what are they, and how are they paid?

Looking for any information on Richard De Clark who married Margaret Sarvant. He then married Maria Parsells about 1820 and had a son Richard Clark, Jr. Any information would be most helpful.

After switching to a new and better web hosting service, the First Mountain Chapter guestbook / messageboard, as of today, after a hiatus, is, once again, fully operational. Eric

Compatriots: I'm sorry to have missed recent meetings,but I've had domestic problems. In the summer of 2006, my wife lost a battle with breast cancer, but we hoped they'd got it all. July of 2007, and it appears it may have moved to lungs. She went to the Mountainside ER on July 3, August 5, & Sep 6 and just came out of ICU yesterday. I'll hope to make the Nov 10 meeting. duane

This message board has recently been plastered with junk messages left by web-robot programs that parse webpages to distill out data entry form parameters then programatically post their junk messages. Consequently, to immunize Firstmountain's public message board from this nuisance, I added the new heuristic number image read and enter feature which today's version of these junk programs cannot perform.

Merry Christmas to living descendants of the patriots who fought and helped to obtain our freedom, and may those descendants, and their families, be blessed throughout the New Year with health, happiness, and success in all their endeavors, and may God bless our society to bring us together to perpetuate the memory and values of our patriot ancestors. Eric, First Mountain Chapter webmaster

I believe I am a 2nd cousin to your member Duane Meyer. I'm a member of the New York City Chapter, NSDAR via James Caldwell. I worked with SR on the Battle of Brooklyn and with the First Continental Chapter, SAR here in NYC. I was so excited to find I have a cousin in this area!

I would like to address this message to chapter member Martin Scharloo III. Sir: my name is Trisha Serven and I am researching the genealogy of the Serven family. Your direct ancestor, Philip Sarvent, has been identified as the son of Philip E. Serven and Katrina Stypers in two books on the Serven family -- in 1876 by Rev. David Cole and in 1933 by A.R. Serven. I am updating and amending Cole's and A.R. Serven's books and am trying to determine if your an

edm: the two mis-spellings have been corrected. Thanks for flagging them. I got the 1928 date for First Mountain from the NJSSAR website on its State chapters webpage. I'll correct the year, but what is the correct year? Eric

Eric: The site looks very nice! There are a couple of mis-spellings of "Society" in two of the sub-sections, but they are easily fixed, I guess. :-) Also, in the About section, there's a bit of inaccuracy. First Mountain was established within the past decade or two; not 1928. As I mentioned at the last meeting, the Montclair Chapter was dwindling, so it was decided to close it, and go to lst Mt, to include all of Essex County. The other municipalities wer

Where's the password registry? I don't see how members register to gain admittance to the "members only" area. edm
