Mary Crooker Lloyd, a niece of Ann Crooker St. Clair, returned north to Effingham, Illinois, after living in Austin, Texas. She immediately commenced the work of organizing our chapter in 1902, building the chapter from its original 17 members to 37 in 1905. She discovered two “Real Daughters” — Mary Young Montgomery (1820-1913), and Martha Young Armstrong (1817-1907), daughters of Revolutionary War Patriot, Philip Young (1766-1840). She was also responsible for starting numerous DAR chapters in Southern Illinois.
Mary Crooker Lloyd was born in New York, June 10, 1840, and died June 28, 1931. She is buried next to the large Crooker stone at Ewington near her grandparents, Jacob and Matilda Lane Crooker and Ann Crooker St Clair Robinson. Mrs. Crooker Lloyd was the daughter of Ann’s youngest brother Edmund Z. Crooker and his wife Eliza Craig.
