The Bosque River Valley Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, met on October 18 for their monthly meeting.

Tanys James presented the program, “Domestic Violence Awareness”. James spoke about the seriousness of such situations and how essential it is for victims to seek help and protection.

Also during the meeting, Chapter member Ann Lenz shared a lovely dramatic representation of her 3rd great-grandmother, Jenny Roberts Quinn, of Rutherford County, NC, and how her family supported the cause and purpose to achieve liberty.

Lenz’s patriot Morris Roberts II lived and died in Chesterfield County, VA, which was a part of the old Henrico County. He served in the militia with Captain John Fox during the French and Indian War of 1756 and provided supplies for the patriots during the Revolutionary War. He also paid taxes which went to support the Continental Army. His son Morris Jr later brought his family, which included daughter Jane “Jennie” Roberts Quinn, to Rutherford County, NC.
