Birth: Feb. 20, 1823
New York, USA
Death: 1913
New York, USA

Abolitionist, reformer and women's rights advocate. She became an anti-slavery activist as a young woman. In 1842, she joined the newly-formed Western NY Anti-Slavery Society (WNYASS), a group which her father and step-mother (aunt), Isaac Post and Amy Kirby Post, had helped to found. After she married her home, like that of her parents, provided refuge for fugitive slaves as part of the network of the "Underground Railroad." She and her husband, William R. Hallowell, met almost every Sunday at her close friend Susan B. Anthony's farm during the late 1840's and early 1850's. She was appointed an officer of the NY State Women's Temperance Society (NYSWTS) and assisted in the organization of the United Charities of Rochester, NY. She worked for women's rights for over 60 years.
