Title Gentile Account, Profile of Elizabeth Kane xvii
Description Elizabeth was a talented woman who developed her abilities in many areas throughout her life. She was a student, a photog- rapher, a physician, a pioneer in northwestern Pennsylvania, and the revered "mother" of General Kane's battalion as well as of her own four children. A faithful and fervent Christian, Elizabeth was always clear about, and sure of, her values. Her relationships with her god and her husband were of prime importance to her; improving the opportunities and status of women was also of great concern to Elizabeth. She felt she had a calling to improve conditions for women. Though neither an apologist nor a suffragette, Elizabeth believed women should hold positions equal with men and be allowed the same politi- cal, social, and educational opportunities. Elizabeth Dennistoun Wood was born in Bottle, a suburb of Liverpool, England, on May 12, 1836. At the early age of six, she began a lifelong enchantment with her cousin, Thomas Leiper Kane, when he visited her family home as a young man of twenty. Returning from abroad, he gave her a French doll which she forever treasured. Two years later, her family moved to New York, drawing the ties closer with her intriguing cousin. When Elizabeth was ten, her mother died; at twelve, she remarked to her sister that she intended to marry cousin Thomas Kane, and in 1853, when Elizabeth was sixteen, she did. After their marriage, Elizabeth and Thomas lived in Phila- delphia wher e u J d ge John K. Kane, Thomas's father, was a prominent United States District Court judge, influential in national politics. Thomas soon held two promising positions- as federal court clerk to his father and as an up-and-coming attorney. His future and material prospects seemed bright xv11
