"I was thirsty and ye gave me drink."
Matthew XXV 35

Left Side
A tribute to a life consecrated to the betterment of humanity.

In 1839 she established the Raisin Institute of Learning.

Fearlessly she combatted slavery with a firm reliance on divine protection, devoting time and means to assist those escaping from bondage.

Right Side
During the Civil War she nursed the sick and wounded in southern hospitals and on battlefields. Her memory is revered by our country's defenders.

She founded the State Public School for Dependent Children at Coldwater. The Industrial Home for Girls at Adrian owes much to her efforts.
