TitleKansas City Women of Independent Minds
AbstractMap and bio of Berenice Chouteau (1801-1888), "Kansas City's original pioneer mother" and "the first white woman to make her home in this area." She was born in Kaskaskia, Illinois, and moving to Kansas City in 1821, building a large house at 3rd and Troost Avenue in the early 1850s after the death of her husband Francois, then moving in about 1853 to "a large, white colonial house at Pearl and Market streets," losing legal claims to land in the West Bottoms just before her death.
