                        Chapter History
   On December 23, 1931, The Floyd Courthouse Chapter was organized.  Since the chapter was to encompass the entire county, it was named Floyd Courthouse, in honor of the County and of Governor John B. Floyd. Anne Simmons Profitt (Mrs. J. E.) was the Organizing Regent. She served as the first Regent of the Chapter and gave her full support to Chapter activities until her death in 1974.  In 1940, the Chapter placed a bronze plaque in the Floyd Courthouse, in memory of patriots of the American Revolution.  It contains the names of the 18   patriots buried in Floyd County.
