I work at the Shaker Museum and Library in Old Chatham, NY, and am looking for information about the life of Amanda Deyo, at one time greatly involved in the Universal Peace Union. She was also a "member" -- probably what the Shakers would have called an associate member -- of the Shaker community at Mount Lebanon, NY. We have at least one book in our collection that bears a bookplate inscribed: " Private Library of Chas. and Amanda DeyoNo. 17."
We would appreciate any further information about the Deyos and will return anything else we find.
