Another lesser known historical reference this time from Owego: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mame_Stewart_Josenberger
https://ualrexhibits.org/suffrage/ma...-ca-1868-1964/

So, this woman graduated from Owego Free Academy in the late 1880's/early 1890's.

Correction, it is likely she attended OFA in the early/mid 1880's, as this source also verifies that she graduated from Fisk in 1888: https://books.google.com/books?id=RF...o%20ny&f=false
