The Alexander Keith Chapter was organized at the home of Mrs. Louise Keith, January 23, 1926.   Fourteen ladies were present.  Mrs. James B. Frazier, Past Regent of the Chickamauga Chapter in Chattanooga, was sponsor of the Chapter since it was at her request that the Organizing Regent, Mrs. Louise Keith, be appointed.

The group took a vote and it was suggested that the Chapter be named Alexander Keith in honor of the Revolutionary War ancestor of the Organizing Regent.  It was seconded and carried.

Alexander Keith served with distinction as Lieutenant, Captain and Aide de Camp to General Washington in the Revolutionary War.  Mrs. James Fraizer, Mrs. H.P. Dunlap, Mrs. John Fort of Chattanooga and Miss Catherine Keith of Athens were also descendants of Alexander Keith.
