Historical Significance: Charles Trumbull Hayden Chapter NSDAR was established by organizing regent Myrtle Carter Peck (1898-1932) on March 12, 1927, to serve Tempe, Arizona. Myrtle Peck was appointed by State Regent Mrs. W.F. Hammett and then elected the first chapter regent for the Charles Trumbull Hayden Chapter NSDAR.
Within the cemetery, very close to Mrs. Peck’s grave, is the Hayden family plot with Charles T. Hayden, businessman and probate judge (1825-1900) (Section B, lot 8, Space 3). He began a ferry and flour mill in Tempe. Tempe Double Butte Cemetery was founded in 1888 and placed on National Register of Historic Places in 2013. It has many notable City of Tempe citizens buried there.
