Prudence Hall Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, was chartered February 23, 1963 in North Little Rock, Arkansas.
The chapter was named after Harriet Prudence (Patterson) Hall, wife of John Hall, who was born about 1743. She immigrated to America with her parents from North Ireland circa 1750-55. According to tradition, she delivered an important message to an American General after passing the British lines. Tradition also says that she nursed a gravely injured man back to health.
Prudence and John Hall had 10 children. The descendants of one of these, Harriet Hetley West, emigrated west to Arkansas by covered wagon from about 1850 to 1870. Many descendants still live in the state and help make it a good place to live. One of them, Homer Martin Adkins, deceased, served as Governor of Arkansas for two terms (1941-1945).
The forty-three member chapter has a camaraderie and shared purpose, fostered by a colorful, photo-packed digital monthly newsletter sent to members near and far.
We believe that our founding members, as well as Prudence Hall would be pleased with the Chapter that we have become.
Prudence Hall Chapter meets the second Saturday of each month from October through May.
