Bios for Speakers:

Jennifer Harvey is currently the Chief John Ross Chapter regent in Chattanooga. She serves on -the State of Tennessee State Application Team (SAT) where she has been a member since 2018, and the National Virtual Application Support team since 2020.  She started her genealogy journey about 28 years ago and made some great family connections. It wasn’t until 8 years ago that she realized she could actually join DAR. She knew she had Revolutionary Patriots in her line for longer than that but thought the society was all about drinking tea and wearing hats! It took some time to figure out that it is the perfect society for her. Since her membership started in 2015, she graduated from GEP 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 7,  as well as the DAR Members, New Horizon, and DAR Committee Leadership courses. Her current membership to Lineage Society includes Descendants of Valley Forge and Colonial Dames of the XVII century. She has her sights on the Flagon and Trenches Society because her Colonial Tavern Keeper is a female and First Families of TN with her Patriot John Sharp. Currently, She has six proven DAR Patriots, two were accepted with analysis and three more are in the queue. Her goal is to prove 30 Patriots with DAR supplementals.

Jean Drew has been a member of the Chief John Ross Chapter since 2009 and is currently the corresponding secretary and has served as registrar and treasurer for the chapter.  She has 11 proven patriots and has completed GEP courses 1 through 4. She is a reviewer on the State Application Team (SAT) and has served on the national Membership Task Force where she has assisted many members throughout the southeast with problem applications.  She is a member of Colonial Dames of the XVII Century, Daughters of American Colonists, Flagon and Trencher Society and the Carter Society. In researching her early colonial ancestors, she recently learned that she shares  10th great grandparents with George Washington and Queen Elizabeth.
