Origin of the Maine Society

  The first Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution in Maine was Elizabeth Wadsworth Chapter in Portland, organized October 8, 1894, with 30 members. It was named for the wife of General Peleg Wadsworth, who was the grandfather of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

  Mrs. John E. Palmer, the first from Maine to affiliate with the National Society, was the first Regent of Elizabeth Wadsworth Chapter and thus has the honor of having been the organizer of the Daughters of the American Revolution in Maine.

  The Council of the State of Maine Daughters of the American Revolution was organized February 1898.
