Ella Hawley Crossett

(1853–1925) Ella was always devoted to her home, Hillcrest, in Warsaw, and to the cause of women's suffrage. In September,1891 she organized a convention in Warsaw where the Wyoming County Suffrage Association was formed with Ella named as president, a position that she held for many years.

Shortly thereafter the Warsaw Political Equality Club was formed and Ella was named president of this group as well, a position she retained until national women's suffrage was enacted into law.
