Jennie Mary King Pearson

(1839–1903) Mary "Jennie" was active in both the temperance and suffrage movement. In 1891, Jennie gave the welcome address of the 23rd annual convention of the New York State Woman Suffrage Association held at the Opera House in Auburn, NY. She was later named as the recording secretary for the association and also served as auditor.

Jennie was also a member of the executive committee for the Women's Christian Temperance Union, where she served in Auburn as county superintendent for juvenile work and the department of mercy in 1895.
