Mary E. Tallman

(1827–1924) Mary 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. She also appears in a History of Education publication. Mary was censured for criticizing a superintendent of schools.
