GREENE, Frances Harriet, author, born in Smithfield, Rhode Island, 4 September, 1805; died in California, 10 June, 1875. She was educated in Providence, Rhode Island, and was early thrown on her own resources for support through the business failure of her father, George Whipple, who was at one time a wealthy citizen of Smithfield. In 1842 she married at Lowell, Massachusetts, Charles C. Greene, an artist, and removed to Springfield, Massachusetts. The marriage proved uncongenial, and she was divorced in September, 1847. In 1860 she visited California, was married in 1862 to William C. McDougal, of that state, and remained there till her death. In the Dorr rebellion in Rhode Island, in May, 1842, she became a violent partisan of the suffrage party, and suffered much social unpopularity from her course. During this year she conducted "The Wampanoag," a journal designed for the elevation of the laboring classes, and contributed frequently to "reform periodicals," particularly to " The Spiritual Philosopher," a paper devoted to the exposition of the principles of nature in their application to individual and social life. In 1848 she became the editor of "The Young Ladies' Journal of Science, Literature, and Art," a monthly magazine published in New York City. Mrs. Greene is the author of "The Original" (Providence, Rhode Island, 1829); " Memoir of Eleanor Eldridge, a Colored Woman" (1838);" The Mechanic" (1841); "Might and Right, a History of the Dorr Rebellion" (1844) ; "Primary Class-Book of Botany " (New York, 1855); "Shahmah in Pursuit of Freedom" (1858); "The Dwarf Boy, and Minor Poems" (1858); and a work published posthumously, entitled "Beyond the Veil," by Emanuel Swedenborg and others, through the mind of Frances H. Greene McDougal (1878).
