Helen M. Freeborn Thornton

(1862–1922) Though originally from Alleghany County, Helen Freeborn Thornton settled in Victor with her husband Charles, and was an active member of the community. She was a member of the Unity Club and the Victor Equal Suffrage Association. In February 1914, she hosted a “suffrage school” at her home that was attended by several local suffragists. The meeting focused on methods to “promote and knowledgeably answer questions about a woman’s right to vote.”
