When the "Sangamon County King's Daughters Home for Old Ladies" (as the home was known then) opened October 7,1895, one of its 5 original "inmates", as the ladies were called, was Mrs. Phoebe Dreake Cleveland. She was the only real daughter of the American Revolution in this vicinity. Read more about her family in the SJR article. The King's Daughters helped to buy a special bronze tablet and attended the unveiling in 1923.
