Inscription.  In the village of Still Pond, twelve years before the 19th Amendment established women’s suffrage, Mary Jane Clark Howard, Anne Baker Maxwell and Lillie Deringer Kelley cast their ballots in the municipal election of 1908. That year, an act for incorporation of the town had provided the right to vote to any male or female resident taxpayer over age 21. Fourteen women were registered to vote, two of them African American.
