Lucy Spicer Shawler

(1812–1896) Lucy was noted in the History of Women's Suffrage as having signed a petition to urge voting against Leslie Russell, NYS Attorney General, who opposed women's rights and whose recommendation was blocking women's rights legislation in New York State. He was defeated by 13,000 votes.

Lucy also spoke at a Chenango, NY convention regarding the position of the county on the women's suffrage bill. It was reported in the New York Times July 26, 1884.
