I and other members of the family, was a guest at the Christmas dinner, where I was the family traditions are one of a small gift at each place and fits a poem composed by my grandmother.


How wonderful that you have such a special ancestor. I was honored to be the guardian-ad-litem of Alice Paul during her latter time in Ridgefield, CT. My strongest memory of this special woman was the disapproving stare envoked by the word "suffragette". She would look you directly in the eye - "we are suffragists... our publication is the 'The Suffragist'..." The press, especially in cartoons, created an "-ette" word to belittle these special women. Thank you for sharing Aunt Het's story. PPS


I, and all women today, own your Aunt Het a debt of gratitude.

This was such an interesting article. I have always been fascinated by the suffrage movement.
