Gilbert Marshall Chapter


Chapter History

When the Arkansas State Conference was held at Helena in the Spring of 1913, several members of the Little Rock Chapter discussed forming a new chapter. The charter was sent in December 17, 1913, and signed April 15, 1914.

The name Gilbert Marshall was chosen to honor the ancestor of the Organizing Regent, Mrs. Thomas Dwight Crawford. Gilbert Marshall of Albermarle County, Virginia was the father of John Marshall, 20, who entered the Revolution on April 11, 1776, as an Ensign in Colonel Samuel Miles' Pennsylvania Militia, and retired as Captain in 1783.
