Toby Riddle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Toby "Winema" Riddle (1848–1920) was a Modoc woman who served as an interpreter in negotiations between the Native American Modoc tribe and the United States Army during the Modoc War (also called the Lava Beds War). She warned the peace commission of a possible Modoc attack, and she saved the life of the chairman Alfred B. Meacham when the 1873 attack took place.

She and her family toured with Meacham after the war, starring in his lecture-play "Tragedy of the Lava Beds", to inform American people about the war. Meacham later published a book about Winema, which he dedicated to her. In 1891 Toby Riddle was one of the few Native American women to be awarded a military pension by the United States Congress, for her heroic actions during the peace negotiations in 1873. (Her first name also appears spelled as "Tobey" in historical records.)

She was born Nannookdoowah, which means "strange child," as she was born with red-tinted hair.[1] As a girl, she was named Winema, (woman chief) after rescuing some playmates from being caught in cascades in their canoe.[2] As a young woman, she was said to have ridden with raiding parties of men to gather horses from enemy camps.[1]Winema was a cousin of Kintpuash (also known as Captain Jack), the leader of the Modoc tribe at the time of the Modoc War.[1]

Jane Applebee's insight:

Modoc woman lecturer toured the country telling people of the Modoc War and tragedy of the Lava Beds. She meet with Alfred Love who was active in fighting injustice toward Natives - and a second California connection to Belva Lockwood.

Alfred H. Love - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Alfred Henry Love (September 7, 1830 – June 29, 1913) of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania was an American political activist.

He was born on September 7, 1830 to William H. Love and Rachel Evans.

He founded the Universal Peace Union in Providence, Rhode Island in 1866 and served as its president until his death.[1] In the 1888 U.S. presidential election, he was the Vice Presidential nominee of the National Equal Rights Party as the running mate of Belva Ann Lockwood. Love withdrew before the election and was replaced by Charles Stuart Wells.

Jane Applebee's insight:

1888 running mate - we had the same interests in gaining equal rights for all Americans and for universal peace.

Belva Ann Lockwood - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Belva Ann Bennett Lockwood (October 24, 1830 – May 19, 1917) was an American attorney, politician, educator, and author. She was active in working for women's rights. The press of her day referred to her as a "suffragist," someone who believed in women's suffrage or voting rights. Lockwood overcame many social and personal obstacles related to gender restrictions. After college, she became a teacher and principal, working to equalize pay for women in education.[1] She supported the movement for world peace, and was a proponent of temperance.

Lockwood graduated from law school in Washington, D.C. and became one of the first female lawyers in the United States. In 1879, she successfully petitioned Congress to be allowed to practice before the United States Supreme Court, becoming the first woman attorney given this privilege. Lockwood ran for president in 1884 and 1888 on the ticket of the National Equal Rights Party and was the first woman to appear on official ballots.[2]

She was born Belva Ann Bennett in Royalton, New York, daughter of Lewis Johnson Bennett, a farmer, and his wife Hannah Green.[3] Though the log cabin she grew up in is gone, her aunt's house where she spent some of her childhood still stands at 5070 Griswold Street. In front of this house is a memorial to her with a plaque that gives a brief biography of her life. By 14, she was already teaching at the local elementary school.[4] In 1848, when she was 18, she married Uriah McNall, a local farmer.[5]

Jane Applebee's insight:

Marietta Stow, my 1884 running mate. Marietta also nominated me for the run. She was from Calfornia where she had run for governer in 1882 - my kind of person. Her husband had been an elite San Franciscan citizen who has a lake in Golden Gate Park named for him.
