Chapter History

The name Lycoming is taken from the Native American name Leganihanne signifying "sandy stream." This great stream, Lycoming Creek, flows into the Susquehanna River and was the boundary line between the land of the settlers and Native American land. In 1795, this name was given to our county. When Lycoming Chapter formed in 1896, there were women still living whose fathers had fought in the Revolutionary War. These women, whose fathers were patriots, are called "Real Daughters." Of the thirty-three original Real Daughters in Pennsylvania, three became members of the Lycoming Chapter.
