Madison, Georgia  

Home of Founding Regent, Sue Reid Walton Manley

Welcome!
Located in the Town General Sherman refused to burn, picturesque Madison is about 80 miles east of Atlanta, and 25 miles south of Athens, in Georgia's Lake Country.

Our colorful past, historic homes, and community spirit give Madison its small town charm -- but it is our location near world-class golfing, sailing and fishing on Lake Oconee, and our close proximity to Atlanta, as well as the University of Georgia, that makes us one of Georgia's best kept secrets!

 

DAR Centennial Chapter - founded March 2, 1910!        


Our Roots...
On October 11, 1909, Mrs. Caroline Hardee Godfrey, State Regent of the Georgia Society of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, met with thirteen ladies at the home of Mrs. Susan Reid Walton Manley to discuss organizing a DAR Chapter in Madison.  Several months later, on March 2, 1910, the Madison Chapter was officially organized, and elected the following officers: Mrs. Sue Reid Walton Manley, Regent; Mrs. Kittie Reid Fitzpatrick, Vice Regent; Mrs. Lula Hurst Atkinson, Recording Secretary; Mrs. Mary Walton Trammell Newton, Corresponding Secretary; Mrs. Lula Wofford Holland, Treasurer; Miss Elizabeth "Bessie" Walton, Registrar; and Mrs. Anna Godfrey Trammell, Historian.

Additional 1910 Charter Members included:  Miss Fannie Walton Vason, Miss Richmond Walton, Miss Grace Logan, Mrs. Pauline Pou Adams, Miss Octavia Pou, and Miss Harriotte McHenry.

Henry Walton, the Patriot Ancestor of several Charter Members, was selected as the name for the new Chapter.  Born 1753,  Brunswick County, Virginia, he was qualified as a Captain in the Brunswick Militia in 1777.  Captain Walton also served as Deputy Sheriff of Brunswick County during the Revolution.

Our Mission...The mission of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is to promote (1) Historic preservation, (2) Education, and (3) Patriotism.
