From the Philadelphia Inquirer 22 Sept 1900
The Quaker City Chapter, Daughters of American Revolution, on Monday afternoon, October 15, at 3 o'clock, in the Chief Justice's room, Independence Hall, will erect a memorial tablet in memory of the soldiers of the War of the Revolution. There will be speeches and a general patriotic ceremony. On Saturday afternoon, October 27, the Chapter will erect a tablet on the grave of Mrs. Sara Doron Terry, who was 108 years old, died last January, and was one of the oldest members of the chapter.

Sarah was originally buried in the Odd Fellows Cemetery in Philadelphia, PA. In 1951 this cemetery was destroyed in order to make room for the Ben Franklin Bridge, and Sarah was removed to Lawnview Cemetery, but her original gravestone was not moved with her.
