Annotation 1

The Recorder carried the results of the Ladies Union Association election, noting that “Miss A.E. Mills” was elected president, “Miss Amina Morgan” was chosen as vice president, “Miss S.L. Brown” became secretary, “Mrs. Elijah Davis” was elected treasurer, and ICY teacher “Miss Carrie. R. Lacount” was appointed corresponding secretary. Having lost her son the previous year, Sarah Davis, Emilie’s sister-in-law, must have found comfort among the women of the LUA. “Notice,” The Christian Recorder, August 5, 1865.
