Marguerite is the granddaughter of Edna Kearns (1882-1934) and Wilmer Kearns (1882-1972), activists in the early women’s rights movement in the US. Her grandfather Wilmer told her the stories and what it was like to be on the front lines. Her mother Wilma (1920-1997) filled in the rest.

Edna Kearns is best known for her “Spirit of 1776” suffrage wagon used for grassroots organizing that is now in the collection of the New York State Museum. The wagon will be on exhibit during 2020, the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution. Exhibition information is updated at SuffrageWagon.org
