Character description

Boarding-house owner in Washington, D.C., during the American Civil War, wife of John Harrison Surratt, Sr. and mother of John Harrison Surratt, Jr. One of the eight people tried for participating in the conspiracy to assassinate Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Johnson, and William Henry Seward, because John Wilkes Booth and his co-conspirators (who included her son) held meetings in the boardinghouse. Mrs. Surratt was convicted and hanged.

A note on her name: Originally Mary Elizabeth Jenkins, she apparently chose Eugenia as her confirmation name, and often used that as a middle name in place of Elizabeth.
