The Rebecca Boyce Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution was organized on January 31, 1948. It was organized by Mrs. John Sidney Farrar with the help of her daughter, Mrs. Sidna Farrar Wellborn, who was a member of the Jane Douglas Chapter of Dallas.

The chapter was named for Mrs. Farrar's grandmother, Rebecca Horton Boyce, 1799-1891, whose family settled east of Waxahachie in 1872. The town of Boyce also received its name from this family. Rebecca Boyce is buried in the Waxahachie City Cemetery.
