Over one hundred years ago on October 6, 1902, Mary Goss Bacon, Almeda Twitchell Bristol, Lois Lyon Carsley, Mary J. Fish, Ella Warner Fisher, Ruth Booth Fisher, Elizabeth B. Haven, Nellie B. Herrick, Lucy Cutting Hindes, Anna B. Harrington, Kate Allen McCuen, L. Augusta Norton, and Carrie Norton met at the home of Mrs. J.G. Hindes (Lucy Cutting Hindes) in Vergennes, Vermont and organized the Seth Warner Chapter. "Having been duly admitted by the National Board of Management into the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, which provides that 12 persons living in one locality shall constitute a Chapter." Their recorded objective "....shall be to perpetuate the memory of the men and women who gave us our independence, to search out historical spots and graves of the Revolutionary soldiers and to encourage historical research in relation to the Revolutionary War." The Daughters believed that the original membership of 13 "to be an indication of all that is good for us, representing as it does the 13 original colonies." Mrs. Lucy Cuttings Hindes was elected the first regent of this new chapter and served from its inception in 1902 to March 5, 1913.
