Governor and Vice Governor
Jacqueline LaMar is the new Governor and Suzanne Palmer the new Vice Governor of the Southeast Colony, Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of North Carolina. Jackie is a member of the Stamp Defiance Chapter, and Suzanne is a member of the Brunswick Town Chapter, NSDAR. They will schedule a meeting of members and prospective members of the Southeast Colony in late January 2023.
Any person, age 18 or older, able to document his/her lineal descent from one or more of the 51 Mayflower passengers known to have descendants is eligible to apply. The one-time application fee is $175 and annual dues are $50 per year.
An interesting aspect of membership in the Mayflower Society is that once proven, a parent or grandparent may pay a one-time Junior Membership Fee of $35 per child (birth to age 18). Junior Members pay no annual dues and are not considered full members of the Society for voting purposes at a membership meeting.
If you or a family member is interested in joining the Mayflower Society, please contact Jackie and Suzanne at [email protected] and [email protected]. They will provide you with the application form and help as necessary.
