Thibodaux in Lafourche Parish, Louisiana — The American South (West South Central)
Georgiana Malvina Suthon
Born in 1850 in Assumption Parish to the Englishman Lucius Suthon and Assumption Parish native Manette Blanchard, Georgiana Suthon became an Episcopal missionary to Japan. Although she initially taught the bible in Tokyo, her eventual mastery of the language allowed her to work alone in remote areas of the country. She later served in Kyoto, located in southern Japan, under Bishop Henry St. George Tucker, who became presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church in America. She was a life member of both the Japanese Red Cross and American Red Cross and was honored for her service.
Erected by St. John's Historic Cemetery.
