Forsyth, Dr. Mary J.
Occupation: Teacher and physician.
I.R. Jan. 24, 1878 – The Detroit papers of January 8th, in publishing a statement
of the work of the Woman’s Hospital and Foundling’s Home, make a very honorable
allusion to Dr. Mary Forsyth, formerly a teacher in the Ironton schools. The report says:
As shown by the physician’s report, 258 women and children have been cared for during
the past year. Of this number 130 were adults and 128 infants, the total being larger
than that of any previous year. Of the adult patients, 4 have died – one with heart
disease, both complaints being of long standing and incurable. Only one maternity
patient and 24 children have died during the year, thus making the whole death rate less
than 11 per cent. This, I think, is much lower than that of any hospital in the United
States; and an eminent Indiana physician said that he thought that the facts should be
published in the United States Hospital Report, as he knew of nothing that could
compare with them. That the result is due to the skill and care of the physician in
charge, Dr. M. J. Forsyth, there can be no doubt. Over 50 women have taken their
infants out with them.

Presbyterian church, Burlington, last Monday afternoon, and was attended by many
sorrowing friends. His body was interred in the little cemetery nearby.

daughter of the Rev. Dan Young. He settled down at Burlington, where he has been
quietly living ever since, enjoying a comfortable practice and the confidence and esteem
of the community. He was a man of warm heart and strong mind. His ideas were clear
and his convictions wholesome. Few men were respected more than he, and all over
this region he was well known. He was appointed postmaster at Burlington in 1844,
when that town was the county seat, and held the office until 1886. He was a man of
business, of thrifty affairs, and of careful judgment. He was a Director of the First
National Bank from 1879 to last January, when failing health compelled the choice of a
successor. His counsel was always valuable, and his transactions strictly honorable.

I. R. May 7, 1903 – GRADUATES AS DENTIST. Ironton Girl Alone in a Class of
Eighty-One. – The Cincinnati Times-Star Tuesday morning has a splendid picture of
Miss Jennie D. Jenkins and the following comment:
“A pretty Ironton (Ohio) belle is the only woman in a class of 81 to graduate from
the Ohio Dental College in the class of 1903. When Jennie Jenkins graduated from the
High School at Ironton at the age of 15 years her mother said that Jennie should be a
music teacher and so Jennie tried. She practiced and practiced, but it wasn’t any use,
for the music wasn’t there. One day she shut down the piano quietly and with
determination faced a gently looking mother.
“I’m not going to study music more,’ she said. ‘It’s no use, mother; I’m going to
be a dentist.’
“And no amount of persuading could change the girl’s plan. Her brother, Dr. C.
W. Miller, of Ironton, was a dentist and the next morning she went down to his office. To
humor her he taught her how to work in his laboratory. In a short time she was so
valuable that he immediately recognized her evident bent in the dentistry line. So
Jennie and her brother said that Jennie should go to a dental college and a mother
careful of her daughter, packed up bag and baggage and came to Cincinnati to live for
three years while Jennie learned to pull teeth and acquired sundry other important
knowledge in dentistry. For three years, while her brother boarded in Ironton and saw a
family reunion in dreams only, Mrs. Lillie Jenkins and her ambitious little daughter have
lived at 417 Hopkins street. Following the graduation exercises Mrs. Jenkins and her
daughter go back to Ironton, where Jennie’s brother has arranged an office for his little
sister. For Jennie absolutely refuses to go into partnership and office with her brother.
She will be the only woman dentist in Ironton and a distinct novelty in that thriving town.
And it’s ten to one that numerous epidemics of toothache will be the customary
condition of the entire lot of “best catches” among the beans of Ironton this summer.
Miss Jenkins’ father has a position in the Bessemer Steel Works in Bessemer, Ala.

profession. She retired many years ago. Dr. Johnson was a cousin of Mrs. Jim

Dear Register: I am off for a trip. Am going to visit the effects East. Mrs.
Lawton is with me and we are skipping along over the C & O road, seeing it all by
daylight, devouring the grand scenery and stopping at some of the points of interest by
the way.
We left Ironton Thursday noon. That night we stopped with Dr. and Mrs. Lester
Keller, in the heart of the striking scenery and extensive coal operations of New River.
They live in a little cottage whose front door is only six feet from the railroad track. The
trains thunder past and sound as though they would tear through the house, but they
are used to the noise, and the hurry-skurry of the trains is music to them.
The walls of the little house are profusely hung with paintings, the work of Mrs.
Keller, who devotes a large portion of her time to work of this kind. The immediate
vicinity affords countless pretty views and she has made many sketches of the river and
mountain side. Mrs. Keller’s art work is really of a high order. She has been invited to
contribute paintings of West Virginia scenery for the women’s department of the World’s
Fair. A teacher in the art school at Cincinnati is spending the summer with Mrs. Keller
and is giving her instructions in portrait work.
Dr. Keller’s house is half way between the stations of Fire Creek and Echo,
which are only half a mile apart. They are the stations for the Central Coal Co. and Wm.
Buery, Cooper & Co. respectively. Dr. Keller is employed as the physician for the
operatives of both these companies, and it is a very busy field of labor for him. The
close proximity of these stations indicates how active the coal and coke business on
New River is……(rest about the coal fields)…
