Daughters of the American Revolution
A Brief History of Our Chapter
Prudence Alexander Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution
(NSDAR) was formally organized June 23, 1953. The organizing Regent was Hortense Alexander Hackler (Mrs.
Garfield). There were thirty
chapter members who met October 21, 1953, for the first official chapter
Alexander, the wife of Daniel Alexander, was the name chosen for the new
chapter. One of the official
documents that substantiated the Alexander time line and residence was
Danielís legal will, filed in Charlotte, North Carolina, in 1775. Prudence and Daniel Alexander had six sons. Three of the sons were officers in the American Revolution. One of the sons, Captain William Alexander, a Congressional
Honoree, was a direct lineal ancestor of Organizing Regent Hortense
Alexander was chosen as the name of the new chapter because it was felt
that her honored name graciously represented the memory and spirit of
the new chapter.
