Order of Descendants Colonials Physicians and Chirugeons

History

ORDER of DESCENDANTS of
COLONIAL PHYSICIANS and CHIRURGIENS

The Order was founded in June 1974 by Mrs. Harry Clark Boden IV, in cooperation with Mr. and Mrs. Edward Hungerford and Grahame Thomas Smallwood, Jr.   In honoring colonial physicians, chirurgiens, and midwives, the Order recognizes their faithful adherence to duty and commemorates their years of service dedicated to humanity, which earned for them the high esteem of their communities. Without these early practitioners, many colonists would not have survived to become our ancestors.
