Real Daughters

Beginning in 1900, the National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution began to recognize among its membership those daughters who were daughters of a Revolutionary soldier or Patriot. The Nancy Hart Chapter, NSDAR, began to search for Real Daughters. Two Real Daughters were identified: sisters, Mrs. Ann Maria Anderson Redding of Brown's Crossing, Baldwin County, and Mrs. Lucy Anderson Gibson, Baldwin County. They were the daughters of William Anderson of Virginia and Georgia.

On Flag Day in 1924, the graves of the sisters were marked by the Nancy Hart Chapter, NSDAR. They were the second official markers for Real Daughters in all of the state of Georgia. Mrs. Redding was buried at Butts Crossing, and Mrs. Gibson's grave is located in Memory Hill Cemetery.

In 1929, Mrs.Yarbrough, then regent of the Nancy Hart Chapter, NSDAR, reported her last two Real Daughters, Mrs. Mary Pool Newsom and Miss Sarah Pool, who lived in Glascock County. Both died in Gibson, Glascock County, and both their graves are marked with Real Daughter markers.

In 1925, Sarah Hearn Garrard marked the grave of Mrs. Mary Caroline Roberts Griffin in Pickens County, Georgia.
