History
In 1920 a preliminary meeting was held to form a National Society Daughters of the American Colonists. The Society was incorporated in the District of Columbia, Washington, D. C. on 25 April 1921.

A number of members of the National Society residing in Illinois wished to organize an Illinois State Society. A meeting of those members took place in Bloomington, Illinois on March 13, 1924 and the Illinois State Society was formed with Mrs. James E. Robinson elected as State Regent. At a State meeting on March 4, 1925, a motion was made that George Rogers Clark be the name of State Chapter No. 1, organized at the same time as the Illinois State Society with officers the same as those elected for the State Society. The George Rogers Clark Chapter, which had been meeting with the State Society with the same officers, decided in February 21, 1933 to elect officers other than the officers elected by the State Society and Mrs. A. M. Earel was elected Chapter Regent.
