Biography of Lucetta S. Carter, Mrs.

Mrs. Lucetta S. Carter. Political struggle, public life and social leadership have brought the names of many women in the last quarter of a century into the limelight in the country, but it is not so frequently that the name of one becomes a household word in her state, through the activities and results of a quiet business career. Such a name is Lucetta S. Carter, philanthropist, through whose generous benefactions Wichita had benefited through the Children’s Home, the First Unitarian Church and Fairmount College.

Lucetta S. Carter was born at Enosburg, Vermont, July 11, 1828, and is a daughter of David and Ruth Stevens (Wilson) Fassett. The paternal ancestors of Mrs. Carter went from Scotland to Ireland in the sixteenth century. The real name of her great-great-grandfather was Patrick Macfairson.

He went to Boston before he was of legal age, having bought his time from his father. He was engaged, for some years, as a salesman in gentlemens furnishings, but owing to ill health incurred by being forced, as a boy to do farm work beyond his strength, he was obliged to take up some outdoor occupation, therefore, he bought and sold goods of all kinds, loaned and invested money and acquired, for his times, a modest competency. Owing to over strict religious training in his early youth, he was not a professed Christian, but in all his life, he wronged no one intentionally, either directly or indirectly, and died at peace with all the world. Those who knew him intimately say his word was as good as his bond. Children: *1415. Charles Sanford, b. July 19, 1853. 1416. Frederick Everett, b. Feb. 20, 1857, m. in 1890, Mary E. Falvey.
