Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: May 18, 1835
Baldwin County
Georgia, USA
Death: Jul. 14, 1881, USA

One of three co-founders of Phi Mu Fraternity, the second oldest women's collegiate social organization in the United States.

Mary Elizabeth was born in Baldwin County, Georgia. She entered Wesleyan College as a junior and, at 16 years of age, was the oldest of the three Founders of the Philomathean Society, later to become Phi Mu Fraternity. She graduated in 1853 and received the customary master of arts degree from the College ten years later. Mary Elizabeth was said to be timid and retiring. An original oil portrait now displayed in the Philomathean Room in the
Cannon Ball House, Macon, Georgia, reveals her dark hair and eyes.
Death occurred at the age of 46. She is buried beside her husband in the Oak Grove Cemetery at Americus. A monument in the shape of the Phi Mu badge marks her grave.
