Hereditary Members

Wm. Lloyd, Jr., made written application to be admitted a member of this Society.

It appears that Major Richard Lloyd, an officer of the Army, was an original member of this Society, that at his death his eldest brother, William Lloyd, was admitted a member of this Society, being eldest brother of the said Major Richard Lloyd, he having died without issue. It further appears that the applicant is the oldest son of the said William Lloyd, the late member, who is now deceased. William Lloyd, Jr., was admitted a member of this Society not in lineal right, but as a collateral worthy to become a member.


The Standing Committee reported that they have examined the accounts of the Treasurer and find that the permanent fund of the Society consists of one certificate of trust on which certificate $100.50 has been paid and the same has been endorsed by order of the Society and by them appropriated, leaving the permanent fund of this Society the sum of $10,000.

The Treasurer has paid out of the monies received by him for the expenses of last year as follows : For the traveling expenses of the members at the meeting at Trenton in 1836, the sum of $91.40; for the expenses of the Society at the said meeting, the sum of $91.75; for the donations to the widows and others the sum of $265 ; the Treasurer has received as interest, $506.25 ; there was previous to the receipt of the interest a balance in the hands of the Treasurer the sum of $50.90. The Standing Committee estimate that there is in the Treasury of the annual income of the Society, the sum of $240, subject to the order of the Society for charitable purposes.


The Standing Committee recommend that $30 be given the following applicants to who have made applications to them for relief: Miss Seely, daughter of Lieut. Saml. Seely ; Mrs. Barber, widow of George Barber ; Miss Whitlock, daughter of Major Whitlock; Miss De Hart, daughter of Capt. De Hart; Mrs. Hendry, widow of Dr. Hendry; Miss Kinney, daughter of Dr. John Kinney; Miss Phebe Ogden, daughter of C. S. Ogden and Mr. William Hyer. Report adopted.


The President announced to the Society the death of Wm. Lloyd, whereupon it was Resolved, that the usual badge of mourning be worn for thirty days.

The Society, together with the Citizens, walked in procession to the Presbyterian Church, where, after a prayer and the reading of the Declaration of Independence, a very eloquent oration was delivered by the Hon. S. L. Southard, who had been previously appointed by the Society.

The exercises in the church being ended, the Society returned in the same order of procession to the place of meeting and proceeded to business.

Resolved, that the thanks of this Society be presented to the Hon. S. L. Southard for his oration, and that he be requested to furnish a copy to be deposited in our archives.
