Augustin Clayton Chapter
National Society Daughters
of the American Revolution
Augustin Smith Clayton was born in Fredricksburg, Virginia, November 27, 1783, and moved to Georgia
when he was one year of age. At the age of seven he enrolled in Richmond Academy in Augusta, Georgia,
and was a student there when George Washington visited in 1791. Augustin S. Clayton was a member of
the first graduating class of the University of Georgia and was admitted to the bar at the age of twenty-one.
He later became a renowned Georgia attorney, debater, judge, state senator, and U.S. Congressman.
Clayton County, Georgia, was named for him.
Augustin S. Clayton
Augustin Clayton Chapter, NSDAR, was organized on June 8, 1973, in Clayton County, Georgia.
The name was chosen to honor Augustin Clayton, the renowned Georgia attorney, debater,
Superior CourtJudge, and legislator. Twenty-three Daughters were at the first organ-
izational meeting. Now, thirty-four years later, we have grown to the present
membership of over one hundred eighty.
The Augustin Clayton Chapter has always endeavored to carry out the
three-fold purposes of the National Society
historic preservation, education, and patriotism
which are the same today as when the Society was founded in 1890.
