Abigail May Alcott
Birth: Oct. 8, 1800
Boston
Suffolk County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: Nov. 25, 1877

Literary Figure. She was the model for the matron character "Marmee" in the book "Little Women," written by her second daughter, Louisa May Alcott. Outspoken and passionate for the rights of others, she was one of the first female social workers in Boston, Massachusetts. She later met and married Amos Bronson Alcott on May 23, 1830, and the union produced four daughters. She was the mainstay in an often-stormy household due to her visionary husband's failure to support his family. Her strong and kind nature provided a stable and nurturing home for her children, and her sayings and teaching were included in her daughter's popular book. (bio by: Abigailworm)
