Major Jacob Gray Chapter, NSDAR was founded in February 1980 by Charlotte Huntley with the help of the North Little Rock Prudence Chapter. The chapter started with 13 members. She has held many positions at the chapter and state level of the DAR. Charlotte was a sweet soul. Quiet but fierce. Even in the last few years, when her body was failing her, her mind was still sharp. She still attended the chapter meetings as she could (which was most meetings). She will be missed.
