CHAPTER HISTORY

When the chapter was organized in 1913, three potential names were submitted to National Headquarters. Judith Robinson was accepted. Judith was the wife of Peter Quin, both early settlers of Pike County. Five of the charter members were their descendants. Many other members have been eligible through this line.

Other than her birthday, little is known of Judith prior to her marriage to Peter, at the age of 16. Their life was chronicled in two family histories. The first, "The Family History of Peter Quin," was begun in 1922 by Madge Quin Fugler, our first regent, and completed between 1963 and 1970 by Jerome C. Hafter. The other, "Judith Robinson Quin 1760-1840: An American Patriot," was compiled by Dr. Marian Alford Mixon Houk. All researchers were descendants of Judith.

At the age of 51, the Quins and six of their seven living children moved to the Mississippi Territory. Among the first settlers of what is now eastern Pike County, the Quins were leaders in the activities of the Territory, and later, the state, just as their descendants are today.

Our chapter is proud to bear the name of a woman whose life exemplified the tenets of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution: God, Home, and Country.
