RE: Where Is It?
Here's the history of the Jersey City group, but it does not give the exact date of formation: http://thelincolnassociationofjerseycity.com/

I'm wondering if the distinction lies in the purpose of each group -- the Jersey City one being more of an educational endeavor (like other Lincoln Groups) while the Monument Association focuses more on the business aspects of maintaining the monument itself.

Both certainly seem to be worthy endeavors.

I bet this is the distinction/technicality as to why the Jersey City group claims the honor:

"The LMA follows in the footsteps of the original association, the National Lincoln Monument Association, which was created immediately after President Lincoln’s assassination in April 1865 to raise funds to build a final resting place “which would fitly illustrate his virtues and renown”. Donations were collected from across America over the next several years, and the NLMA oversaw the design and construction of the martyred President’s memorial.

The National Lincoln Monument Association was disbanded when the last member passed away in 1894, and the tomb passed into the ownership and care of the State of Illinois."
