Maria Boughton Crump

(1850–1909) Maria and her sister, Christine Boughton Dunning, were founding members of the Pittsford Political Equality Club. Maria’s family is an example of the connections between women’s suffrage and abolition. Maria’s father-in-law and husband were ardent abolitionists who aided runaway slaves. Maria and her husband had nine children. Their son, Dr. Walter Crump, was a Trustee of the Tuskegee Institute, the historically Black college founded by Booker T. Washington.
