Bushnell-Hamlin, Ella


Ella Bushnell-Hamlin, portrait artist, musician, teacher, suffragist, and editor, was born Ella Grace Coney, married Jonathan Cline, divorced him, and changed her name legally to Ella G. Bushnell-Hamlin. Her name was taken from her mother's name, Martha Bushnell, and a long line of Hamlins on her father's side stemming from the Hamlins who came to England with William the Conqueror's army.

Bushnell-Hamlin edited both The Trident, a weekly magazine, between 1904 and 1910, and the magazine, Farm Gist. Later, she owned and operated Trident Publishing Company in Davenport, Iowa. She was also a schoolteacher in Atalissa, Iowa for a short time.
