White Alloe Chapter, NSDAR, Chapter History
The White Alloe Chapter, NSDAR, was organized in Parkville, Missouri, on March 26, 1957, by State Regent, Mrs. David Eads, State Vice-Regent Mrs. Walter Diggs, and District Director Mrs. Hugh P. Hartly. There were twelve organizing members, with Mary Bullock Aker serving as organizing regent.
The name White Alloe was chosen for its historic value to the city of Parkville. In pioneer days a French fur trapper, Claude Pierre Alloe, spent his winters in a dugout at the mouth of a small branch that flowed into the Missouri River. Local lore has it that Chief Narva led the area Detroit Indian Tribe. Alloe fell in love with and married Narva’s daughter, Morning Star. Because of Alloe’s fair complexion, he was renamed “White Alloe," as was the branch where he resided. This small body of water was later to become the dividing line between the town proper and the Park University campus.
