Daughters who have Passed to Rest - 1904

Mrs. Henry Black

[Chapter Report - p. 111-112]

Has held its regular meetings twice a month till August 1st; from that time till October 1st we met one a month. Since then we have resumed our regular meetings. We have also had three called meetings during the year.

Have celebrated the birthdays of President Davis and General Lee with appropriate programs, and held memorial services on the day that General Gordon was buried, also sent laurel wreath to family for funeral. We celebrated Memorial Day be decorating graves of our soldiers with flowers and wreaths made for that purpose, numbering 130. Have given three entertainments during the year, from each of which we realized a nice sum.

Several members of our chapter assisted Mrs. M. A. Zumwalt in collecting money for the Widows’ Home Fund. These ladies did fine work. Mrs. Zumwalt, who is chairman of this committee for South Texas, deserves great praise for this noble work.

We have paid our general and State dues, $14.70 each. Assisted a poor woman, the widow of a Confederate soldier and sent a year’s subscription to “Dixieland” to the Confederate Home. The Chapter is now free of debt, and has some money in treasury.

Has a registered membership of 152 members. Have $61 in bank for Widows’ Home Fund. Membership is increasing at each meeting and Chapter in quire a flourishing condition.
