Welcome to the John Cain Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, chartered in Hope, Arkansas!
John Cain Chapter received its charter December 30, 1929. It was named for John Cain, a private of Brunswick County, Virginia, ancestor of Georgia Delaughter Haynes, organizing regent, the late Helen Hesterly McLarty, and Ann Thompson Rome Hogueland, current member.
The young chapter hosted the 1932 Arkansas State Conference in Hope. Mrs. Haynes was the 1944 State Regent, and the chapter marked her grave in 1983.
Hope, Arkansas is the home of the Hope Watermelon Festival.
The National Society, founded in 1890 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., is a non-profit, non-political, volunteer women’s service organization.
