Happy birthday, Abigail Hopper Gibbons (Dec. 7, 1801 – Jan. 16, 1893)! #Quaker. #Abolitionist. Teacher. Social reformer. Daughter of Isaac Hopper, who was disowned by the Quakers in 1841 for his radical anti-slavery activities. Soon afterwards Abigail resigned from her Meeting in protest, though she and her family continued to practice the Quaker lifestyle and adhere to Quaker principles. Buried in Green-Wood Cemetery, Brooklyn, New York.
