Augustin Clayton Chapter
National Society Daughters
Augustin Smith Clayton was born in Fredricksburg, Virginia, November 27, 1783, but moved to Georgia when he was only 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.
About Our Chapter ~ 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 Court Judge, and legislator. Twenty-three Daughters were at the first organizational meeting. Now, thirty-four years later, we have grown to the present membership of over one hundred eighty.
Our Mission ~ The Augustin Clayton Chapter has always endeavored to carry out the three-fold purposes of the National Society --- historic, educational, and patriotic --- which are the same today as when the Society was founded in 1890.
