Lizzie Crozier French of Knoxville — Organizer of Ossoli Circle , one of Tennessee's first women's clubs in 1885; founder of Knoxville Equal Suffrage Society in 1910; president of Tennessee Equal Suffrage Association, 1914. In 1920, at the age of 71, she campaigned for equal suffrage locally and nationally, and led a delegation of National Woman's Party members who marched to the Ohio home of Republican presidential nominee, Warren G. Harding, to demand a 36th ratification of the 19th Amendment. When registering to cast her first ballot in November, 1920, she listed "suffragist"as her occupation.
Lizzie Crozier French's gravesite is not just any grave, the fact that it includes her husband, who died 50 years before she did, tells part of her story as a single mom. You can find her grave at Old Gray Cemetery in Knoxville, Tennessee.
