Victoria Claflin Woodhull

Victoria Claflin, daughter of  Buckman and Roxanna Claflin, was born in Homer, Ohio on September 23, 1838. She  ran for President of the United States in 1872. For a number of reasons the family was encouraged to leave Homer when Victoria was a youngster. She went on to live a colorful life.

The Homer Library has a number of books about the Claflins and Victoria. There is also a scrapbook of newspaper articles that have been written over the years.  There is an Ohio Historical Marker at the library honoring Victoria.
