Biographical Notes



Lizzie Ferris

Born: about 1855

The daughter of a Mister Ferris and Matilda McCullough [born August 23, 1833]. Lizzie's maternal grandfather was Evan Lewis McCullough, her grandmother Parthenia Hazen. Her parents married about 1853.

What little we know about Lizzie Ferris comes from the McCullough memoirs. Her advice to Nancy McCullough on what was important for the education of the four youngest girls proved a turning point in that family's life.
