Kikthawenund Chapter
Anderson, Indiana

Chapter History

(Our charter has found a home in the Indiana Room at the Anderson Public Library)

On January 30, 1909, Mrs. Ella Cumback Lovett, the organizing regent, along with the help of Mrs. Frances Hay Durbin, met in the former's home and began the arduous task of forming a new chapter in the Anderson, Madison County, Indiana, area. Together they assisted an additional twenty-five women, who became members of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution and charter members of the Kikthawenund Chapter. Mrs. Durbin was the first vice-regent in 1910, and became the second regent of the chapter.

The Kikthawenund Chapter was chartered May 6, 1910.
