1912 AND 1926

Listings below are of earlier family historians who were members of the Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of New York residing in Herkimer and Montgomery Counties in 1912 and 1926. Who are the members of this organization? According to the Sixth Record Book:

Article II, Membership, SEC.I - Every lineal descendant, over eighteen years of age, of any passenger of the voyage of the "Mayflower," which terminated at Plymouth, Massachusetts, December, 1620, including all signers of "The Compact," shall be eligible to membership. They must be proposed, seconded and elected.

"The Society of Mayflower Descendants had its origin in the State of New York, where an organization was formed in the month of December, 1894. Societies were formed in Connecticut and Massachusetts in March, 1896, and in Pennsylvania in the following July.

The General Society was organized at Plymouth, Massachusetts, January 12, 1897, at a meeting of delegates representing the four State societies.

The General Board of Assistants chartered the Society in Illinois, June, 1897; those in the District of Columbia and Ohio in March, 1898; New Jersey in August, 1900, and in February, 1901 those of Wisconsin, Rhode Island and Michigan. At later dates were chartered societies in the States of Minnesota, Maine and Colorado.

On January 11, 1908, a charter was granted to a society organized in California, and to one in the State of Washington on March 28, 1912. Subsequently, charters were granted to societies in Kansas, Indiana, Nebraska and North Carolina. The society in Minnesota is now (1926) inactive.

The nineteen State societies comprised in the General Society have an aggregate membership of about 6,000."
