The Gideon Carr chapter was organized April 7, 1962, in White Bluff, Tennessee, by Mrs. Ann Williams Smith, State Organizing Secretary of the Tennessee Society DAR.  Mrs. Smith, the first regent, began the chapter with twelve other organizing members.

The chapter was named in honor of Gideon Carr, a Revolutionary War soldier born in Albemarle County, Virginia, who served as a private in Colonel T. Taylor's Virginia Regiment. Gideon Carr came to Dickson County around 1810 and died there March 21, 1844.  His grave in Stuart Graveyard was marked by this chapter on October 18, 1969.  Other graves of Revolutionary War soldiers buried in Dickson County have been marked by the chapter.  They are: Christopher Strong, Daniel Williams, Charles Thompson, and Asa Davis.  In 1976, to celebrate our Nation's Bicentennial, the chapter placed a monument on the lawn of the Dickson County Court House with these men's names on it.
