    Seven women met in New London Connecticut in February, 1896 to to form the ” The New England Society of Mayflower Descendants”  and received a charter on March 7, 1896. The name was soon changed to “The Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of Connecticut” as other Mayflower Societies were established in New England states. On January 12, 1897 the Connecticut society joined with New York, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania to form the General Society of Mayflower  Descendants.

    This beautiful membership medal was  used for a period of less than a year due to the name changes of the society.

    This is the only one of these I have encountered. Does anyone have one in their collection? If so please share the details. This one is numbered 46 and marked to Caldwell. It is gold but not so marked.
