Susan B. Anthony Memorabilia

All historians have a focus. & many of them have a reason for that focus. My particular research focus is the Suffrage Movement, & one of the main reasons is because Susan B. Anthony lived, with her family, in Battenville here in the Town of Greenwich for a number of years.

Here is a look at some of my personal suffrage memorabilia collection, with a specific focus on Susan B. Anthony.

Susan B. Anthony envelope and stamp postmarked 1936

This stamped & postmarked envelope was unopened & appear to contain something inside. Being curious, I used steam to loosen the glue & open the envelope without damaging any of the paper. This is what I found...

I wonder what items will be created for the upcoming NY state Suffrage Centennial in 2017, or the US Suffrage Centennial in 2020! #ny4suffrage

  1. Good Afternoon - I stumbled upon your blog while doing research on a home my wife and I recently bought in Battenville... a few doors west of the susan b. Anthony house. our address is 2783 Route 29. It's the first house on the left as you enter battenville from the West. At any rate, I see your research is focused on the Anthony house, but I wondered if you'd ever stumbled across anything about our home. According to the deed research, the owners back at the time of SBA were the Stoops family. If you have anything to share, we would love to hear it. we'd especially like to find photos of the property from years ago. Thank you!
