 Well-educated and from a cultured and prosperous family, "Miss Julia" (as she was known) traveled the world and was a published poet.  One of the county'​s most famous [[Women of Boone County|women]],​ she successfully managed the large farm, and raised her two nieces on her own.  The daughter of one of the girls, Isabella Greenway -- no doubt inspired by her great-aunt'​s example -- became Arizona'​s first congresswoman. Well-educated and from a cultured and prosperous family, "Miss Julia" (as she was known) traveled the world and was a published poet.  One of the county'​s most famous [[Women of Boone County|women]],​ she successfully managed the large farm, and raised her two nieces on her own.  The daughter of one of the girls, Isabella Greenway -- no doubt inspired by her great-aunt'​s example -- became Arizona'​s first congresswoman.
