About Anna Surratt

Elizabeth Susanna Surratt (1843-1904) aka Anna Surratt; aka Eugenia Susanna Surratt.

Daughter of Mary Elizabeth Jenkins aka Mary Surratt (1823-1865) and John Harrison Surratt (1813-1862). Elizabeth's mother, Mary, was executed for her role in the Lincoln assassination. Elizabeth married William P. Tonry, a chemist and physician.

Anna Surratt is remembered chiefly for her heartbreaking efforts to save her mother from being hanged by the U.S. government. After the guilty verdict, a tearful Anna tried to see President Andrew Johnson at the White House to plead for her mother's life, but she was prevented from doing so. Adele Cutts Douglas, widow of Senator Stephen A. Douglas, went to see the president on Anna's behalf, but was unable to change Johnson's mind.
