Sarah Maples Chapter

Mabank, Texas

Welcome to our chapter website. We hope you will stay and get to know us. If you are interested in DAR membership, contact us .

Sarah Maples Chapter was organized October 9, 1984, with twenty-five organizing members from several small towns and additions in the area of Cedar Creek Lake. The organizing regent was Eula Robinson, and the chapter name was chosen to honor the patriot ancestor of seven organizing members. Sarah Maples rendered aid to the Army of the American Revolution in North Carolina by feeding the troops (amt. 2 pounds and 12 shillings - Vol. V, page 56, Folio l, Archive and History #1930). She was born in Richmond Coounty, Virginia in 1746, the daughter of Avery Dye, Jr. She married Thomas Maples (also a patriot) before 1772, when she and her husband signed a deed. She died in 1790.

Membership in the NSDAR is open to women eighteen years of age and older who can prove lineal, blood descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence. Documentation must be provided for each statement of birth, marriage, and death between the prospective member and the revolutionary ancestor. More information on eligibility is available on the National DAR website.
