Mrs. Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Mrs. Elizabeth Cady Stanton died last Sunday in this city, aged eighty-six. Mrs. Stanton was born Nov. 12, 1815, in Johnstown, N.Y. She was the daughter of Supreme Court Judge Daniel Cady and wife of the late Henry Brewster Stanton, a noted abolitionist and journalist. She began her education at the Johnstown Academy, and later became a pupil at Emma Willard’s Seminary in Troy. She was graduated with the class of ’32. Eight years later, while attending a world’s anti-slavery convention in London, she made the acquaintance of Lucretia Mott, which resulted in the joint issuance of a call for a woman’s rights convention. She was noted ever since as a suffragist and a reformer, and had many admirers all over the country.
