Abolitionist, Civil Rights leader. Along with her husband Benjamin and their daughters Catherine (Stebbins) and Mary (Curtis), her family was one of the most prominent early anti-slavery advocate groups. Her home was one of the first established stops on the Underground Railroad. She was also one of the earliest activists for women's rights; she was a participant in the very first Seneca Falls convention in 1848, was one of the signatories of the Declaration of Sentiments written by Susan B. Anthony and was instrumental in the organisation of the second women's rights rally which took place in Rochester two weeks after the original Seneca Falls meeting. (bio by: Mount Hope NY)
