Jeanette (Janet) S. Kilpatrick Pybus

(1864–1944) Jeanette was an individual who went by many names (Janette, Janet) in the records including "Nettie". Born in Dresden, NY she lived in Gorham for most of her adult years. Jeanette was the vice president of the Gorham Political Equity Club. She was a member of the Ontario County League of Women Voters as well as the Women's Christian Temperance Union.

"Janet" is found in Gorham Cemetery buried with her first husband, W. Thomas Pybus while William S Thompson, her second husband, is buried along with his first wife. Nettie and William had been married for 40 years, so were they honoring their first spouses? Had Nettie's political activities created a wedge between them? We can only wonder.
