As a member of DAR, I feel obligated to correct the inaccuracy stated above. She was not a founder of DAR. She did organize a chapter in Illinois.
Letitia Green Stevenson joined DAR in 1893 with the National Number 2635. The Letitia Green Stevenson Chapter in Bloomington, Ill., of which she was an organizing member, formed in 1894 and was named in her honor. Mrs. Stevenson was a new member of DAR when she was elected President General.
