Susan J. Clapp Searl


This cabinet card shows Susan J. Clapp Searl, ( 1833-1914), wife of Albert Dwight Searl. The couple married on October 9, 1857 in Southhampton, Massachusetts. Later moved to Lawrence, Kansas for Albert to establish his surveying career. In 1861, when he enlisted as a private in the Eighth Kansas Volunteers, Susan accompanied him into battle for nearly a year attending to the sick and wounded soldiers at battlefield sites. As the Civil War continued and her husband moved up the military ranks, Susan decided to return to Lawrence. In the closing days of the war, the couple were reunited and remained in Douglas County until Albert's career took them to Leadville, Colorado in 1872. Susan died at the age of eighty-one and was buried in Oak Hill Cemetery in Lawrence, Kansas.

Home Life in Early Days

Valentine, Martha

In this reminiscence, Martha Valentine relates her experiences as a Kansas housewife during the early years of white settlement in Kansas. Valentine and her husband Daniel first came to Kansas in 1859 and eventually settled permanently in Peoria, Franklin County, in 1860. She describes how, in that same year, a severe drought hit Kansas and eleven months passed without rain. Her family suffered from the drought, having to subsist mostly on stored corn, small game animals, and wild vegetables. Many people in her neighborhood suffered during this time, sometimes requiring aid sent by Easterners. Copied from the Topeka Capitol, February 23, 1908.


The female vote

The Club Member

This article outlines the resolutions made at the annual convention of the Kansas Equal Suffrage Association meeting on October 30, 1908. These resolutions explain the reasons why these women supported female suffrage, including their belief that ?we deem it more direct, more womanly, more dignified to cast our own ballot than to ask some man for his vote on a matter that concerns us vitally.? As stated near the beginning of the article, the members of this group took their cue from the declaration of women?s rights from the first suffrage convention in the United States, held at Seneca Falls, New York, in 1848.
