Anna Bancroft Sayre

(1855–1924) Anna spent her life in West Bloomfield, New York. She was the wife of a local physician who served for the Union Army during the Civil War. Anna was a member of the Home Missionary and the Honeoye Aid Societies. While Anna's exact roles are unknown, it is well documented that the Richmond area was actively supporting the causes of abolition, temperance and women's rights.
