Descendants and Relatives of Suffragists: We Need Your Help

Do you have a suffragist in YOUR family tree? We want to hear all about them!  TPSMA is gathering family stories, histories, memorabilia, and any other information related to the struggle to win the right to vote.  Our goal is to educate the public about these brave suffragists and we need your input to create a rich information base for the kiosks in the memorial. To share your stories and/or information please contact the Descendants Committee: Descendants@suffragistmemorial.org.

Descendants or Relatives We Know

We are also especially interested in information on suffragists on the list below who were arrested and/or imprisoned at either the Occoquan Workhouse in Lorton, Virginia, or in the D.C. Jail in Washington, D.C., in 1917.  They will be remembered with special plaques within the memorial.  If you have any information on these suffragists, please send to the Descendants committee at Descendants@suffragistmemorial.org.
