Flowers left for Esther Morris
The bio sketch continues the legend that Esther "worked for the attainment of suffrage in Wyoming." By "work," the story was that at a tea party, she asked her neighbor, Wm H. Bright, to introduce suffrage at the territorial legislature of 1869. He did--with the backing of the Territorial Secretary, Edward M. Lee--likely the major proponent. The tea party story was later refuted by Esther's son, Robert. Otherwise, there is no question that Esther was a prominent suffragist in national circles--subsequent to WY's act of 1869.
