Chapter History

History of the Ann Haynes Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution:

Mrs. Thomas O. Towles, State Regent, organized the Ann Haynes Chapter in Kirksville, Missouri, February 09, 1907, with sixteen charter members. The charter was granted April 4, 1907. The chapter was named for Ann Huggins Haynes of Rowan County, North Carolina. One of the first activities of the new chapter was a visit to the graves of Revolutionary soldiers Thomas Lay and James Fletcher, who are buried in Adair County. Membership reached 119 members in 1983. In 1992, twelve members transferred from our chapter to form a new DAR chapter in Schuyler County, an adjoining county.

Chapter Meetings are held the second Friday of each month, at various locations. Please contact us for further information. All chapter programs follow the guidelines set by the National Society, and include a variety of topics and presenters relating to historical preservation, education and patriotism. Guests are welcome.

For membership eligibility in the DAR, please visit the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution web site.
