Puc Puggy Chapter
Lady Lake, Florida
The Puc Puggy Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, is named after
William Bartram, a botanist researching plant life in Florida in the 1770s. He lived with the
Seminole Indians for a period of time, and they called him 'Puc Puggy,' the Seminole words
meaning 'Flower Hunter.' Bartram discovered a tree native to Florida, which he named
Franklinia in honor of his friend, Benjamin Franklin.
Our chapter was chartered on October 15, 1994, in Lady Lake, FL. The Organizing Regent was
Carolyn J. Foster.
