    Notes 
    • "Went in 1860 and again in 1887 to the West Coast of Africa as a missionary, and barely escaped with her life. Wrote after her return "Home Life in Africa", whose profits went toward educating a native for the ministry. Was afterwards educated in bibliography by Dr. Ezra Abbott of Harvard College Library; prepared the well-known Quincy catalogue, the Prince catalogue, and those of the Minnesota History Society, Middlebury college; and others. Later she has done much work in home and city missions. Has been gathering information about the Merriam family for a long time, and has most liberally placed all her valuable collection at the service of the editor of this work." (C.H. Pope)
