FORTY-THREE WOMEN WHO
HAVE POSED AS MEN.
WRITTEN FOR THE SUNDAY REPUBLIC.
Within a year six women have been dis
covered. In America alone, who have suc
cessfully misqueraded as men; have gone
through a legal form of marriage and even
posed as the fathers of families. Upward
of a score of similar cases have come to
public attention recently in different parts
of the world. There have been forty-three
Instances of women posing as husbands
within the last ten jears. One memcai au
thority claims that one woman in every
3.0) is a victim of this peculiar mania.
Two new Instances have been added re
cently to the amazing list of women who
have lived and died disguised as men. In
both cases the women had been "married."
and had reared and educated children.
"Mr. William Howard." really Alice C.
Howard of Canandalgua, N. Y.. who
died In her home, surrounded by her family,
on March 22 last, leaves a unique record.
She had lived with her "wife" conunuously
since their formal wedding, performed forty
jears ago. Her marriage certificate deco
rated the walls of her home to the time
of her death. She left three children, of
whom she professed to be very fond.
In the case of George Green, who died
recently In Petersburg. Va., after mas
querading for sixty jears as a woman, a
new light is thrown upon the family rela
tion of such a union. The Green woman
had been "married" for thlrty-flve years.
She was of English birth and had worked
at many forms of manual labor requiring
both strength and courage. Several jears
of her life were passed In the mines uf
She died at the age of 74. leaving a widow.
She had been regularly married by a Ro
man Catholic priest.
Many New Yorkers have not entirely re
covered from the chagrin of discovering the
real sex of Murray Hall. Here was a char
acter widely known, active in affairs, a lo
cal politician of prominence, the last fol
lowing in the world, it would seem, for
such an enterprise. 8he carried on the
difficult business of politics for jears with
out raising a suspicion, drank and smoked
with the "bojs" and was an excellent Judge
of pretty girls, she left a "widow" and an
adopted daughter, 25 jears old. The most
careful search failed to throw any light
upon the Hall woman's mysterious motives.
Within a few weeks of Murray Hall's
death still another case of this nature, the
woman by chance bearing the same name,
attracted local attention. Miss Caroline XV.
Hall, It will be remembered, wearing- the
dress of a man, and accompanied bj- a
"wife," died suddenly on a steamer bound
for New York. This Hall woman was a
native of Boston, where she was well con
nected. According to the confession of the
"wife" the two had traveled together all
over Europe without attracting the least
suspicion. The Hall woman's family were
aware of the masquerade and deeplj- de
plored It, but had never been able to dis
suade her from her course.
There is probably no more remarkable
cas of such deception lasting for a period
of many years than that of the famous
"Chevalier d'Eon." The Chevalier was a
woman, but not until her death at the age
of 72 years, after being almost continuously
before the public, washer secret discovered.
She became prominent lh the court of Louis
XV, held several public offices, and was
Anally sent as the King's diplomatic agent
on an errand of great Importance to the
court of the Empress of Russia. Her In
fluence upon public affairs In France was
Important for half a century. Perhaps,
after all, the most astounding evidence of
the compartlve commonness of such mas
querading Is shown by the army records of
sucn cases. -Many or these women nave
made excellent soldiers. Sergeant "Frank"
Wayne, a woman whose real name was
Frances, rose to be an officer In the United
States Army, and was killed In battle In
18C2. Another. "Franklin" Thompson of
Companj- F of the Second Michigan, who
was reallj- a Mrs Seelye, served for several
jears, and had the reputation of being a
good soldier. "Charles" D. Fuller, Com
pany D of the Fortj--sIxth Pennsylvania,
and a Mrs. L. N. Blaylock of the Twenty
sixth North Carolina, and several others
were discovered to be women during the
Civil War, and were discharged from the
An English woman as "Christian" Cane
nagh, enlisted In the army in the last cen
tury and went to Holland, She was known
as a brave soldier and Is said to have ac
tually fought a duel with a superior of
ficer. On her secret being discovered, she
remained with the regiment as cook.
Doctor "James" Barry, an English armj
surgeon, was discovered to be a woman,
but not until she had served at Malta and
at the Cape. She once fought a duel with a.
soldier who called her a woman. There
have, besides, besn a great manj' cases of
women who have donned male attire and
enlisted In order to follow their husbands,
though these properly belong to a different
Many of those masquerading have been
great "lady killers." Many who were In the
habit of crossing the Atlantic a few years
f ago will recall Mrs. Anna Talbot, who for
years served as steward on one or the great
Atlantic liners under the name of "John
