The DAR Fielding Lewis Chapter was organized in Marietta, Georgia, with 17 charter members on April 12, 1904. Ellen Lowell Crosby was the organizing chapter regent. She was the great-great-granddaughter of Colonel Fielding Lewis and Betty Washington, who was George Washington's sister.
Our chapter has grown to more than 280 members. Chapter meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month from September to May.
