In 1938, the Robert Kirkwood Society of the CAR was organized in Newark, Delaware. The Society was named for Robert Kirkwood, a Revolutionary War major from Mill Creek Hundred, Delaware. The Frazer Jones papers of the Robert Kirkwood Society, Children of the American Revolution consist of two linear feet of correspondence, clippings, official records, photographs, publications, ephemera, and other materials primarily related to Frazer Jones’s work in the CAR.
