Julia Evelina Smith (27 May 1792 – 6 March 1886) was an American women's suffrage activist. She was the author of the book Abby Smith and Her Cows which told the story of her and her sister Abby Hadassah Smith's tax resistance struggle in the suffrage cause while the two were living at the Kimberly Mansion in Connecticut. Julia Smith also translated the Bible from its original languages into English.[1] This is considered the first complete translation of the Bible into English by a woman. The Bible was titled The Holy Bible: Containing the Old and New Testaments; Translated Literally from the Original Tongues. See Julia E. Smith Parker Translation.
