Nettie Mudd, author of The Life of Dr. Samuel A. Mudd, was the ninth and youngest child of Dr. Samuel Alexander Mudd (the physician who tended to John Wilkes Booth after Booth shot Abraham Lincoln).
Dr. Mudd died on Nettie's fifth birthday, January 10, 1883. Nettie became a school teacher, teaching at the Gallant Green elementary school just a short distance from where she lived with her family on the Mudd farm.
Nettie published The Life of Dr. Samuel A. Mudd in 1906 when she was 28 years old. On December 8, 1906, Nettie married Daniel Eldridge Monroe, a 61 year-old Baltimore lawyer whose wife had died in 1869, leaving him to raise their five daughters and two sons. A year later, September 27, 1907, Nettie gave birth to twins, William Eldridge Monroe and Sarah Frances Monroe, who died soon after birth. Nettie and Eldridge had two more children, James Victor Monroe, born November 7, 1908, and Frances Dyer Monroe, born October 12, 1910.
Eldridge Monroe died in 1914. Nettie remained in Baltimore, raised her two children there, and earned her living as a bookkeeper. Nettie Mudd died at 65 years of age on December 31, 1943.
