She Voted

My grandmother's first cousin, Lillian Hildur Ingeborg Johnson, was one of the first women to vote in the State of Connecticut. I shared her headstone recently on Tombstone Tuesday.

I don't know anything about her politics, but I'm sure she would have exercised her right to vote today.

She passed away in 2004 at the age of 107.


  1. Anna, thank you so much for sharing this photo of Lillian and her pioneering vote. No matter what her politics, I agree with you, she would have been at the polls today!

  2. How fun to find such a pioneer in the family. I approve this message.
