My Celebrity Relations

GRIFFIN, Teresa [1832-1906] -- American author, activist

Relationship to me: 4C2
SANDS family Outline Descent Tree(s) ODT
Contents:

Lived in New York City in the 1870s, recently divorced from General Egbert L. Vielé ¤ in an incendiary spectacle played out in the popular press, with charges and counter-charges of adultery, insanity, and cruelty. Their five children -- Kathlyn, Herman, Teresa, Egbert and Emily -- were the further subjects of a bitter custody dispute involving kidnappings and re-kidnapping. During all of this Mrs. Vielé kept scrapbooks which have been preserved (see bookmarks, below).

Mrs. Vielé seems to have been very involved socially, as were many 19th century, upper-middle class women. She was a member of the American Ladies Aid Association for Cuban Women and Children which raised money and supplies for victims of the Cuban revolution. As a participant in the Southern Relief Association, Teresa Vielé was a member of the Committee on Public Places of Amusement. She also apparently had political interest in Mr. George Francis Train, a candidate in the 1872 presidential election. George Train was a member of the Train League which campaigned on the promise of an equal distribution of political power for all women, men, and ethnicities and supported women's suffrage.  -30-
