Welcome to the Major Jacob Gray Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, chartered in Jacksonville, Arkansas!
The Major Jacob Gray Chapter is one of 3,000 chapters in the United States and internationally. Located in Jacksonville, Arkansas, the chapter was organized on February 1, 1980, by Charlotte Huntley and had fourteen charter members. The Prudence Hall Chapter, NSDAR, in North Little Rock, Arkansas, sponsored the new chapter. The chapter is dedicated to promoting the objectives of the NSDAR.
The Major Jacob Gray Chapter, NSDAR, is named after an American Revolutionary War soldier. Jacob Gray is believed to be one of the first known settlers to move into the Bayou Meto area (current day Jacksonville/North Pulaski County) – approximately twelve miles northeast of Little Rock, Arkansas.
The Major Jacob Gray Chapter meets the 2nd Saturday of each month with the exception of May, when we meet on the 3rd Saturday.
The National Society, founded in 1890 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., is a non-profit, non-political, volunteer women’s service organization.
In 2007, the Major Jacob Gray Chapter, NSDAR, placed a historic marker near his gravesite.
