About Ann Philips Grundy (Rodgers)

Ann Rogers Grundy was born December 8, 1779, in Lunenberg County, Virginia, to John and Sarah Dougherty Rodgers. She married lawyer Felix Grundy on May 11, 1797, in Springfield, Kentucky. In 1808 she and her husband moved from Bardstown, Kentucky, where he served as chief justice of the Kentucky Supreme Court to Nashville, where he became the law partner of James K. Polk

Active in other voluntary women's organizations, as well as her church-related associations, Grundy was among the original board of managers of the House of Industry for Females. This institution, organized in 1837, provided a home for orphan girls and young women and gave them marketable domestic skills as an alternative to prostitution. In the 1890s the Young Women's Christian Association continued this work.

Ann Rodgers Grundy's daughters and later descendants followed her example by working in numerous charitable endeavors and voluntary associations in Nashville. When Grundy died on January 27, 1847, her obituary in the Republican Banner listed none of her accomplishments and said only that she was "Mrs. Grundy, widow of the late Honorable Felix Grundy, a lady universally respected and beloved." She is buried in the Grundy family plot at Mt. Olivet Cemetery.
