Warm Welcome to our newest members: Nora Oldham, Lena Roper, and Delores Johnson. All these ladies were recently approved by National.

On April 13, 2013 the chapters of Samuel Elder and Michael Hillegas merged with Michael Hillegas remaining the name of the new chapter. Officers from both chapters met to discuss By-laws and other items to provide for a smooth transition.  Changes are inevitable but one thing is not.... the patriotic spirit of the newly merged Michael Hillegas Chapter NSDAR.

Back row are Hazel Duncan, Sharon L. Tanner, Michael Hillegas Regent, and Christy Short, Samuel Elder Regent. From row are Betty Head and June Vangampler. Elizabeth Morris, photographer. 

Contact our regent for more  information about our meetings, which are held the third Saturday of the month September through May.

For membership information please feel free to email our regent, webmaster, or at and fill out Prospective Member Information Request Form under Become a Member section.






Michael Hillegas was a sugar refiner and successful businessman who helped to finance the colonies' battle for independence. In September of 1776, he became the first treasurer of the United States and served until 1789.
