Miss Mamie E. Weller

Miss Mamie E. Weller was born Jany. 8, 1862, on a farm at the edge of Greenwood village, near Nashua, in the house which is still her home.  She is the daughter of Luman Hamlin Weller and Mary Eliza Pickett.  Her father was a lawyer by profession and represented the fourth district in the U. S. congress, 1883-1885.  He was a scholarly man, a progressive along every line of thought.  He died March 2, 1914.  Her mother's grand father, Sylvanus Stewart, during the Revolution collected all the ammunition stored at Danbury, Conn., and had it carried in ox carts to Pewkeepsie, N. Y., thus saving it from the British, when they marched on Danbury.  Philo Penfield Stewart, who founded Oberlin, the first co-educational college, was a cousin of her grandmother.  Miss Weller attended the Nashua high school and Bradford Academy.  There are books in every room of the Weller house and these have been her university, for she is a constant reader.  She has traveled all over this country, Canada and Mexico.  She is a member of the Isabella Club which was a charter member of the I. F. W. C.  She attended the session of the Iowa federation and has been a delegate at many subsequent meetings;  has been a delegate to four general federations and to the National Conservation Congress.  Her special club interest has been in conservation, having been a member of the state committee on conservation for several years.  She is a member of the Congregational church, of the D. A. R., King's Daughters, International Sunshine Society, and the American Forestry Association.  She is fond of society, having a home famed for its hospitality.
