Olympia vs. Antoinette -- who was first?[edit]

How is Olympia Brown the first "fully ordained" female minister when Antoinette Brown beat her by a handful of years? Antoinette Brown (later Mrs. Antoinette Brown Blackwell) completed a seminary course of studies at Oberlin and was later ordained in 1851. Does "fully ordained" in relation to Olympia Brown somehow mean more than 'ordained', which was what Antoinette Brown was? Binksternet (talk) 01:44, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
