Chapter History

Rockwall Chapter was organized on February 3, 1978, by Mrs. James H. Goodson, and was named for an underground wall of rock.  The wall, which encompasses a large area below Rockwall County, was discovered by early settlers digging wells in search of water.  Although it has a man-made appearance, it has been suggested that it may be a natural rock formation.

The chapter was organized with a membership of thirty-one.  Organizing officers were: Mrs. James H. Goodson, regent; Mrs. Frank A. Bell, vice regent; Mrs. Oscar P. Peck, chaplain; Mrs. E. Neil Duckworth, recording secretary; Mrs. George Roland, corresponding secretary; Mrs. Ernest L. Hudson, treasurer; Mrs. Anna Gray Davis, registrar; Mrs. Raymond Davidson; historian; Mrs. G.Clifford Cornelius, librarian; Mrs. Dave Ablowich, Jr., parliamentarian.
