Unfailing Loyalty

Interesting piece of history, note inducting Mary L. Ingersoll into the Daughters of the American Revolution, date 1898:

The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution

This certifies that Mrs. Mary L. Ingersoll as a regularly approved member of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, in connection with the Gen. Nicholas Herkimer Chapter having been admitted by the National Board of management by virtue (??) of her descent from John Cleveland, who with unfailing loyalty rendered aid material aid to the cause of American Independence as an Ensign during the Revolutionary War.

Given under our hands and the seal of the National Society this Seventeenth day of February 1898 - Letitia Green Stevenson Pres., Charlotte Emerson, main Rec., Sec. General, Fillie (??) Tyson Talphin, Registrar General -

Admitted Nov. 4, 1897
