El Toyon Chapter

Stockton, California

Chapter History

In November 1900, a small group of Stockton women of early American ancestry met to discuss the formation of a chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution.  As a result of the meeting, El Toyon Chapter, NSDAR, was organized with twenty-six members on 9 January 1901. On that day, a Wednesday, the chapter met for the first time at Miller Memorial Hall where  Mrs. J. D. (Anna Foreman) Peters was elected El Toyon's  first chapter regent.
