  • Note: From an 1892 encyclopedia:{{Ref|1}} "In early life her parents removed [from N.Y.] to Oshkosh, Wisconsin, where her education was completed. In her writing as a school-girl was discerned exceptional excellence. After her marriage she resided for some years in Minnesota, and during that period published her first poems in the Oshkosh Times and Peterson's Magazine. In 1878 she traveled extensively in Europe, and her descriptive letters, written for the papers of her own and other States, gained for her a reputation. A Prehistoric Romanza (Minneapolis, 1882) was the first poem she published in book form. She also wrote several cantatas, the most successful of which was The Captive Butterfly, for which Prof. J. B. Carpenter composed the music. Her fondness for literary pursuits made her many social engagements burdensome, and her fondness for scientific and historical reading clashed with the attention which she felt it was her first duty to give to her home, but by improving spare minutes during the last ten years she has written three prose works and many poems. Her descriptive style is vivid. She is a member of the Women's National Press Association of Washington, D. C., vice-president of the Short Story Club and founder and president of the Parzelia Circle, a conversational and literary order. Mrs. Dieudonné now resides in Washington, D. C." -- {{Note|1}} A Woman of the Century: fourteen hundred-seventy biographical sketches, edited by Frances E. Willard & Mary A. Livermore, 1893, Vol. 3, p. 243.
