The society has had mindful growth from the sixteen 16 charter members in 1904 to 116 in 1913. Our first baby was Rebecca Lamb. Our first bride Miriam Duchardson Dumar. One of our aims and ambitions is the raising enough money for a Chapter House and we hope this may be fulfilled and that the descendants who head this may had the use and convenience of it for some time. For this purpose a number of beautiful entertainments have been given. A Colonial Tea at the home of Mr. and Mrs. F. P. Johnson and two Colonial assemblys. All beautiful affairs. Many daughters appearing in colonial dress  - and a great success both socially and financially. Flag day June 14 and Washingtons Birthday February 22nd have been fitting observed in a social was as also organization day December 14th much is held at the home of Mrs. Carpenter.

The Chapter has been supported A little girl at the Berry School in Rome Ga. for two years and we have but very substantial loves to this school for several years. The Chapters has entertained the State Conference three times in a very hospitable manner. This being the primer chapter of then the ten (10) now in the State Conference.
