Colonel Ebenezer Folsom Chapter, NSDAR, was chartered
December 8, 2001, and named in honor of Ebenezer Folsom
who was born May 16, 1730, at Ashford, CT,
and at an early age moved to North Carolina where he
married his second wife, Elizabeth Daniel, about 1754
in Beaufort County. They were parents of five sons.
He participated in the Battle of Moore's Creek Bridge
where the Whigs routed the Tories in one of the early
battles of the American Revolution. On May 7th, 1776,
the Provincial Congress and the State Council of
Safety, "Resolved that Ebenezer Folsom be allowed 10-
pounds for his vigilance and important services rendered
for his country in the late insurrection." Not as a
reward, but as a mark of his country's confidence and
approbation. On the same day he was appointed
Colonel of the Cumberland County Militia.
He was ordered to take 200-300 men and to range
Cumberland County and impress Tories to cease murdering
and robbing Patriots and "on receiving said Declaration
call a general meeting of the people of Cumberland
County and read the Declaration of Independence to them
so they may be informed thereof, and that it be read
to the regiment stationed at Cross Creek."
The chapter meets on the third Wednesday of each month
from September through May, unless otherwise stated.
Each regular meeting of the chapter includes the DAR Ritual,
the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America,
the Pledge to the DAR Flag, the American's Creed, the Preamble to the
Constitution of the United States of America, the President General's and
National Defense messages, and a presentation by a speaker on a subject
relating to the mission of NSDAR.
Parliamentary procedures are observed.
