The National Society United States Daughters of 1812 was organized on January 8, 1892. The purposes of the Society are to promote patriotism, to preserve and increase knowledge of the history of the American people, by preserving documents and relics, marking historic spots, recording familiy histories and traditions, celebrating patriotic anniversaries, teaching and emphasizing the heroic deeds of the civil, military and naval life of those who molded this government between the close of the American Revolution and the close of the War of 1812, from 1784 to 1815, inclusive, and to maintain, at National Headquarters in Washington, D.C. a museum and library of memorabilia of the period.

Women eighteen years of age and over are eligible for membership, providing that they can satisfactoily document their lineal descent from an ancestor who rendered military, naval or civil service between the close of the American Revolutionary War and the close of the War of 1812.

Com. William Wetmore Chapter was organized November 7, 2009 in Stow, Ohio. Our first project was to place a War of 1812 marker on the grave of William Wetmore in Stow Cemetery. This was done on July 31, 2010.

We have since done other markings and photographed the graves of the veterans of 1812 buried in Summit County and worked to get flag holders for each veterans' grave. Our next goal is to get headstones for each man who has an unmarked grave. We have also been doing memorial ceremonies around the area for these veterans and will continue to do so throughout the Bicentennial years. Plans for 2013 and beyond are to mark the graves of "real daughters" of the patriots of the War of 1812 and celebrate the Bicentennial of the War of 1812. We are also planning an outing to Ft. Meigs during the summer of 2013.
