The Josiah Brunson Chapter


Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR)

Center Point, Alabama

The Josiah Brunson Chapter was founded in 1974 and named for Josiah Brunson. Mrs. Claire Cooper Dorough, a descendant of Josiah Brunson, had been asked by Dorothy Youngblood Woodyerd, the Alabama State Regent, to organize a chapter in the eastern part of the city of Birmingham.

Josiah Brunson was born September 7, 1750 in St. Mark Parish, South Carolina. At the time of the American Revolution, Josiah and six of his brothers served with General Francis Marion's Brigade in South Carolina.
