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.

Chapter Meetings are usually at 12:45 pm, the third Wednesday of August - May in various locations around the Cedar Creek Lake. Regular service projects include a scholarship for a high school senior, maintaining the Veterans Gardens at the Lake, and refinishing Texas historical markers throughout the year.
