Mary was the daughter of Daniel Freeman Pepper and Betsey Burke, and wife of Ellis Usher Kidder.
She was blinded as a teenager, but fortunately for hymn lovers, had her sight restored after a few years.
She belonged to the Methodist Episcopal Church, and lived 46 years in New York City.
If you know where to get a good photo of Kidder (head-and-shoulders, at least 200×300 pixels), would you ?
