Gardner, Mrs. Byrum Goad, Miss Jezebel Goad, Mrs. Joseph Early,

The Society was established to promote patriotic, historical, and

men and women who achieved American independence.

The Appalachian Trail Chapter is active in supporting DAR schools,
awarding scholarships, and DAR Good Citizens awards to local
students each year.
