If you would like a copy of the application with the Patriot's information, you may request a copy from DAR National Headquarters. Please make a check in the amount of $10.00 ( one request per envelope) payable to the Treasurer General, NSDAR. Mail the check along with your patriot's information to:

The record copies for Elijah Williams are in the 200,000s. Meaning the ladies who joined around the 1940s or so. I cant tell from the index. The index does not say who his parents were.
If any female member of your family is interested in DAR membership, please let us know.
Best of luck with your research. Sara
