May Cooper Stewart

(1864–1929) May was a lifelong resident of the Finger Lakes region. Little is known of her contributions to suffrage but she is mentioned in a publication by the Ontario County Historical Society. We do know that by the year 1900, May was a single parent raising two daughters. She taught in local schools and owned a home. It is easy to believe that she was a supporter of women's rights.
