Welcome to the Jauflione Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, located north and east of Kirksville, in northeastern Missouri.

Chapter History

The chapter was organized on December 5, 1936, in Memphis, Scotland County, Missouri, Blanche Culbertson, Organizing Regent. The name was influenced by the Indian name of the Fabius River, near the west side of Memphis.

" To receive true spiritual guidance, one must deal with the past, have faith in the future, but live in the present."

American History and genealogy are an important aspect of the DAR, and the Jauflione Chapter shares the objectives of the National Society, to promote patriotism, education, and historical preservation. Since its inception, Jauflione Daughters have actively been involved in obtaining historical data from local cemeteries and copying county records, which they have provided to the National Society. As part of a bi-centennial project, Daughters created a needlepoint block, which was placed in a quilt that is on display at the Missouri state capitol; and a time capsule was made and stored in an attic to be opened in 2076. Others wrote family histories and recorded them in "Scotland County in Retrospect," a book compiled and issued especially for the bi-centennial of our nation.

In the past, our chapter has given flags to the Memphis Cemetery for the Avenue of Flags and to local organizations. Family Bible records have been sent to NSDAR. Cards of cheer were sent to the Iranian hostages. Books and DAR magazines have been given to the Scotland County Library. Dorothy Aylward, DAR member, gave many programs on American Indians. A ship design quilt block was made for the 500th year anniversary of Christopher Columbus discovery of America.

Regular chapter meetings are held the first Friday of each month. Guests are welcome. For more specific information regarding the Jauflione chapter, we invite you to contact us.
