national society daughters of the american revolution

Honoring our heritage — focusing on the future — celebrating America!

Welcome to the Floyd Courthouse Chapter NSDAR!

The Floyd Courthouse Chapter was organized December 23, 1931. Since the chapter was to encompass the entire county it was named Floyd Courthouse, in honor of the county and of Governor John B. Floyd. Anne Simmons Profitt (Mrs. J. E.) was the organizing regent. She served as the first regent of the chapter and gave her full support to chapter activities until her death in 1974. In 1940, the chapter placed a bronze plaque in the Floyd Courthouse in memory of patriots of the American Revolution. It contains the names of the 18 patriots buried in Floyd County.
