  Colonel Charles Lynch Chapter


Welcome to our website!


The Colonel Charles Lynch Chapter was formally organized at Avoca by Sally Moss Smith Rowbotham (Mrs. Arthur), founding regent, and eighteen members on November 10, 1922.


We are Daughters with varied interests - art, history, literature, music, needlework, and religion - but we have in common our desire to keep alive the spirit of our Revolutionary War ancestors.  Our chapter is named for Colonel Charles Lynch (1736-1796), who distinguished himself as planter, lawmaker, ardent Whig, Revolutionary War soldier, and member of the Virginia House of Burgesses.  


The Avoca Museum, the home-site of Charles Lynch, is an example of 19th century victorian architecture and listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
