A Brief History of Our Chapter


The 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 meeting.

Prudence 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 Daniel’s 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 Hackler.

Prudence 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.
