With the help of the Kansas City Chapter the grave of Honorary State Regent Jennie Wilhite Ellis in Missouri was dedicated after being "Marked" with a DAR Insignia Emblem. She was our 41st Washington State Society DAR (WSSDAR) State Regent. Her chapter, Virginia Dare, was disbanded in 1975, and so, as part of our 125th state society anniversary, the Sacajawea Chapter funded the placement of a DAR insignia emblem for Mrs. Ellis.
