Daughter of the American Revolution Had Four Ancestors Who Fought at Bunker Hill

No woman was better known in Boston's social circles than Laura Ann (Wentworth) Fowler (1837-1911), wife of Major William F. Folwer. Laura was born in Amasa Wentworth and Susan (Nowell) Wentworth in Somersworth, New Hampshire. She was a descendant of Elder William Wentworth, from whom Lt. Gov. John Wentworth also descended. Laura was a founder and Regent of the DAR Old South Chapter in Boston, a member of the Bostonian Society (being the first woman admitted), a member of the New Hampshire’s Daughters, director of the Massachusetts Federation of Woman’s Clubs, and vice-president of the General Federation of Clubs of America.
