    Seeking information about Caroline Burnett, suffragette

    Blair Forlaw Newbie

      @Fifteen women and 15 men identifying themselves as "colored" and from UnionTown in Washington DC signed a petition for women's suffrage in 1877.  Fredrick Douglass Jr was the first petitioner.  I am conducting research for a project on Women and Social Causes and would like to know more about the less well-known petitioners, especially Caroline Burnett, one of African American signers of a petition for women's suffrage, led by Fredrick Douglass Jr. in 1877.  Thank you.
