About the Neosho Chapter: Our Past

The Neosho Chapter NSDAR has been Picture of Neosho Stone Monumentactive within the Neosho, Missouri community for many years. The stone monument in the photograph was dedicated to the city of Neosho in 1937 and is located in Neosho's beautiful Big Spring Park. The plaque reads: "From this point, the town of Neosho, Missouri was laid out in 1839. Placed by the Neosho Chapter DAR." The stone wall in the header photograph of our web site contains the emblems of all of the organizations in the Neosho community who support the Big Flag project, including the Neosho Chapter NSDAR.

The Neosho Chapter NSDAR was organized on April 18, 1925, with Mrs. H.S. Sturgis as Organizing Regent. The twelve charter members were: Mrs. A.W. Duff, Mrs. Virginia Mitchell, Miss Mona Osborn, Miss Pansy Osborn, Mrs. James Pickens, Miss Ella Price, Mrs. Frank Reed, Mrs. J.B. Stauber, Mrs. Ednard Steep, Mrs. H.S. Sturgis, Mrs. George Tatum, and Mrs. H.V. Wicks. Also present were Mrs. W.W. Boatts, Missouri State Regent, and Mrs. W.N. Andrews, Missouri State Registrar.
