A fifth daughter, Mary Edwards, was born three months later on Nov. 26. Alvah Walker believed women should have an education and career. Since there was no school in Oswego Town, he built one on his property. The sisters attended school, then Mary went to the Falley Seminary in Fulton, and onto medical school.
