We are a group of 45 ladies who can trace our ancestry to a member of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts. We reside primarily in Illinois and carry out the ideals of the National Society.
The Illinois Court was organized on 13 November 1941 by Ruth Bent Sapp (Mrs. Frederick Arthur). Our court has admitted over 260 ladies to membership since that time.
The most comprehensive listing of A&H members is: Members of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company in the colonial Period 1638-1774 by Maude Roberts Cowan. It is available in many libraries. Or, you can contact our webmistress.
