BACKGROUND NOTE

Mabel Lindly was born in 1873, the daughter of William Alden Lindly and Eliza Wray at Oskaloosa, Iowa. She came to Lincoln with her parents in 1886, graduated from Lincoln High School, and received her A.B. from the University of Nebraska in 1895. Through the services of Gov. Robert Treat of Connecticut, Miss Lindly established her eligibility to membership in the Hereditary Order of Colonial Dames of America. Through the ancestry of Francis Linsley (1639) she was a member of the Society of Dames of Founders and Patriots of America.

Miss Lindly helped to establish and was the first editor of the Nebraska and Midwest Genealogical Record from 1923-1928. She served the Nebraska Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution as corresponding secretary from 1919 until 1921, and as state historian she compiled and edited the Nebraska State History of the Debra Avery Chapter of the D.A.R. at Lincoln. She was regent of the Deborah Avery Chapter. In addition to her genealogical activities she was also a member of the National League of American Pen Women.

Miss Lindly died on 10 October 1935 in Lincoln, Nebraska.
