Denver founded its own chapter on May 26, 1898. Mrs. Mary Greene Montgomery Slocum, wife of Colorado College President William Slocum and president of the Colorado State Society, helped with the chartering of Denver's chapter. The 1900-1901 yearbook lists 66 members; by 1901-1903, there were 90. One of those early members was Elizabeth Fletcher Brown Lennon, a Real Daughter.
As the name suggests, a Real Daughter is an actual offspring of a Revolutionary War patriot. Her father was Samuel Brown, a second lieutenant in the War. Henry C. Brown, builder of the Brown Palace Hotel and donor of the land on which the state capitol stands, was Mrs. Lennon's brother.
