Frances McConkeyTaneycomo Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, was formally organized on February 1, 1960, with 15 qualified members assembled through the inspired efforts of Miss Frances Lacy McConkey. Throughout the years, our chapter has actively strived to help improve our Taney County, Missouri, community through our dedication to historical preservation, education, and patriotism. In recent years, we have sponsored the American History and Christopher Columbus Essay contests and the DAR Good Citizens Awards; co-hosted monthly research classes with our local historical society, along with working with society members to help preserve grave markers of the McConkey family and organize indexes from 1800s court cases; and participated in Veterans Day activities in Branson. Check out our Facebook page for pictures of our fun activities!

The Taneycomo Chapter meets regularly throughout the year, offering lively meetings and interesting programs.  Contact us for information on our next meeting, our chapter, and how to join the DAR.


The Missouri State Society Daughters of the American Revolution was organized in 1894 and now has 104 chapters with over 5,600 members. Missouri Daughters honor our Revolutionary War patriots who sacrificed and fought for the freedoms we possess today in the United States of America. We continue to share a love of country and dedication to the national DAR objectives with our 2016–2018 state theme “Three CHEERS for Missouri DAR in Historic Preservation, Education, and Patriotism” To learn more about the Missouri State Society, visit the Missouri State Society DAR web site at www.mssdar.org.
