Chapter records show that a group of patriotic ladies assembled with Organizing Regent, Mrs. J. Vernon Hardcastle, and chose to name the chapter for Revolutionary War soldier and citizen patriot Patrick Gillmore. Gillmore was born in 1753 in Augusta County, Virginia. He is cited in North Carolina records for furnishing items and money to support the militia of North Carolina. Gillmore also served in the Illinois Regiment of Virginia State Forces, in the Company of Captain John Kennedy's Militia, under the command of Col. George Rogers Clark. These forces were ordered into service by Col. John Bowman from 6 July to 20 August 1780 in an expedition against the Indians. In 1805, Gillmore is listed on the tax rolls of Montgomery County, Kentucky, and by 1809, Gillmore's name appears on the tax rolls of Warren County, Kentucky, along with several of his sons.

Patrick Gillmore died February 2, 1824, and is buried in Warren County's Gillmore cemetery south of the Barren River, about eight miles from Bowling Green, Kentucky.
