Liberty, Fraternity and Unity Since 1892

So says the tag line for the National Society United States Daughters of 1812. Here's an example of a membership marker placed at a daughter's grave:

According to its website, usdaughters1812.org, the United States Daughters of 1812 was founded in 1892. It's "a non-profit, non-political, women's service organization for descendants of patriots who aided the American cause during the War of 1812." There is an ancestor database at the site that would surely be worthy of a look if applicable to your family history.

The membership marker above sits at the grave of Mattie Thompson Hulsey. She rests at Alta Vista Cemetery in Gainesville, Hall County, Georgia.
