Daughters Of Revolution.
Interesting Meeting of Local Chapter Held With Mrs. Calhoun.

The monthly meeting of the Daughters of the American Revolution was held with Mrs. Alfred T. Calhoun on last Thursday afternoon at four o’clock.  The occasion proved interesting and delightful, the business features being sandwiched in between several short papers and talks, and a cooling and refreshing punch being served through the afternoon by the hostess.

The chief business of the afternoon centered in the renaming of the Chapter, the Regent having been informed by the vice president general of the National Society that no duplicate names are allowed in the United States.  This Chapter had several weeks ago decide upon the name “Colonial” but this happens to be the name of one of the largest chapters in the United States, that of Minneapolis, Minn.  Very regretfully the local chapter resigned the name which had been chosen without any knowledge of another chapter having the name.

After discussion and a good deal of deliberation, it was finally decided to name the chapter “Etowah.”  This name has local significance, and is musical and appropriate in many ways.

Three new names were presented to the Membership Committee and were elected to membership.  Mrs. Lizzie Belle Cobb Gilreath and Mrs. Mary Cobb Satterfield, whose ancestors, Lieutenant James Barnett was one of the heroes of the Revolution in Virginia; and Mrs. Malinda Speir Tarplee, whose line comes down from Wm. Halbert, of South Carolina, through the Browns of Georgia, and other prominent families.

Two new committees were added to the Chapter and the regent appointed the members as follows: Committee to investigate early records and history of Bartow county, Chairman Mrs. D. B. Freeman, Mrs. J. W. Vaughan, Miss Florence Rowan.

Committee on revolutionary graves in Bartow county.  Chairman Mrs. L. S. Munford, Mrs. A. W. Fite, Mrs. R. R. Beazley.

The program consisted of short readings by Mrs. Pilling, Miss Lewis, Mrs. D. B. Freeman and Mrs. Peeples.

At the close of the program a delicious ice course was served.  Mrs. Calhoun was assisted in receiving by Mrs. Lila Calhoun Morgan.

The meeting adjourned to meet in September with Mrs. George H. Gilreath and Miss Marie Gilreath.
