Our Chapter History

The George B. Singletary Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy was organized June 19, 1899, in Greenville, North Carolina. Mrs. T. J. Jarvis served as its first president. The Greenville chapter was named in honor of Colonel George B. Singletary, a prominent Greenville attorney and the Commander of the 44th Regiment N.C. Troops. Colonel Singletary was killed in action June 5, 1862, about eight miles west of Washington, N.C., at the Battle of Tranter's Creek. The site is located today just off of U.S. 264 at the Pitt County/Beaufort County line. A North Carolina Civil War Trails marker has been placed just east of the county line to commemorate the battle and in honor of Colonel Singletary.
