CAPTAIN ALEXANDER QUARRIER CHAPTER, NSDAR
14 February 1950
Mrs. Mildred Schultz was the organizing regent of Captain Alexander Quarrier. She was a 50-year member of NSDAR when she died in 1991. Captain Alexander Quarrier was one of Mrs. Bertha McCoy Mylar’s (our second regent and a charter member) patriots. He was born on March 3, 1746, in Scotland of staunch Presbyterian parents. He came to America and settled near Harrisburg, PA. During the Revolutionary War, he formed a company of men and joined George Washington during his stay at Valley Forge. He received his commission as captain during the war. He died on May 21, 1827, and is buried in the family plot in West Virginia, close to the PA border. Our chapter has been known as both Captain Alexander Quarrier and Cypress Chapter.
