Monticello in 1940
Founded in 1913, the Monticello Association is a non-profit organization of people who can prove to be the lineal descendants of Thomas Jefferson, 3rd president of the United States. Jefferson was the designer, builder, owner and principal resident of the Jefferson Mansion, Monticellomarker.


The Association's purposes as stated in its Constitution are to:
"(A) Preserve and care for the graves and grounds of the Monticello graveyard, (second) to protect and perpetuate the reputation and fame of Thomas Jefferson and (third) to encourage association and friendship among Mr. Jefferson's descendants;
(B) to defend the property rights of the lineal descendants of Col. T. J. Randolph as owners of the original Monticello graveyard; and
(C) to affirm the rights of the descendants of Thomas Jefferson to burial in the addition to the Monticello graveyard as provided in the covenant under which this property was deeded."


There are two categories of membership in the Association:1. Regular Membership, which is open to any lineal descendant of Mr. Jefferson upon receipt of a completed application and annual dues.2. Associate Membership, which is offered to step- and adopted children, and to spouses of regular members if such persons show interest in the Association by attendance at meetings, by correspondence with the Secretary, or by monetary contributions.
