Twins Abbay and Phoebe Wallace, second graders at Campus School in Memphis, hold their poster and photograph of their great-great-great-grandmother, Memphis suffragist Mamie Duffy Willingham. This is what’s in Mrs. Willingham’s obituary:  “When Carrie Chapman Catt fired women with dreams of voting, Mrs.
Willingham was a member of the suffrage group here, and escorted by “stunning police officers”
