"Salome Lincoln Mowry was born in Raynham, Massachusetts, and joined its Free Will Baptist Church in 1823. She attended a religious meeting in 1827, to which the scheduled preacher was unable to come, so she delivered the sermon herself. Afterwards, despite some opposition, she continued preaching around Massachusetts and other parts of New England. She preached less often after her marriage to Elder Junia S. Mowry in 1835, and she died six year later following complications from the birth of their second child." She is perhaps most remembered for leading an 1829 walkout of weavers from Taunton when their wages were lowered by the owners. [Portraits of American Women in Religion].
