Chapter History

The Matthew Talbot Chapter, NSDAR, was organized on January 23, 1914. We are proud to be a centennial chapter. Our chapter was named in honor of Matthew Talbot, a Revolutionary War Patriot. He served as a captain in the Georgia militia, then began a career in politics, which included service as a superior court clerk, a delegate to the state constitutional conventions of 1795 and 1798, and a member of the Georgia state senate. Talbot also served as governor of Georgia. He died on September 17, 1827, and is buried in Wilkes County. The town of Talbotton and Talbot County were named for him.
