Mary E. Oliver Monroe Botkin
3rd wife of Jeremiah D. Botkin

Mary Elizabeth was a school teacher in Neodesha, KS, before her marriage. Later, she enjoyed her duties as pastor's wife in the M.E. Church, her social duties and privileges in Washington, D.C., and later as Warden's wife. She preferred to spend her time trying to help the convicts to a vision of better things, rather than mingle in the high society as was customary for the Warden's wife. The convicts loved her and called her "mother Botkin".
