Marietta Holley (1836 - 1926)
Marietta Holley (1836-1926), was an American humorist who used satire to comment on U.S. society and politics. Among her works was a 10-book series that detailed the travels and married life of Samantha and Josiah Allen (written using the pseudonym "Josiah Allen's Wife") as they journey outside Samantha's rural hometown, which was similar to Holley's own in Jefferson County, New York. Many of Holley’s writings share the common themes of prohibition and women's rights.
