Alexander Love Chapter in Houston Texas was organized in
1923 by a group of ladies who felt the need to pursue an
active participation in patriotic work. A hospital
for disabled World War I veterans located at Camp Logan
(now Memorial Park) offered the ladies the volunteer service
they were seeking. Several
meetings were held before the October 19,1923, meeting at
the First Christian Church in Houston, Texas, when the Alexander
Love Chapter NSDAR was formally chartered. Mrs. Rowan and
Mrs. McFarland were recognized as the co-founders.
motion was made and carried that the chapter be named after
Alexander Love who was the Revolutionary South Carolina
ancestor of 10 chapter members of the Sterling Family. Seventy-two ladies were charter members of the chapter including a past State
Regent, Mrs. I. B. McFarland ; a past State Chaplain, Mrs. H. S.
Renick; and past State Historian, Mrs. W. A. Rowan.
