In January 1897 this chapter was named the Martha Reid Chapter No. 19 in honor of Mrs. Mary Martha Reid, the matron of Florida Hospital, a Civil War hospital established in Richmond.  In order for Florida to form a Division, three more chapters were needed.  By July 14, 1897, five chapters had been chartered, and the First Annual Convention of the Florida Division U.D.C. was held in Jacksonville.
