Biographical history

Martha Cartmell (1846-1945) was a Methodist/United Church missionary to Japan and to the Oriental Mission in Victoria. She was educated in Hamilton and Toronto; in 1882 she went to Japan as a Methodist Woman's Missionary Society missionary. Because of poor health she returned to Canada in 1887, working in the Oriental Mission in Victoria, B.C. from 1890 to 1892 before returning to Japan for four years. Before retiring in 1898 she worked two more years at the Victoria mission. Elizabeth Strachan (1841-1931) held the office of Corresponding Secretary of the Methodist Woman's Missionary Society for forty-three years.
