RE: Mary Jones Gresham Machen
Mary Jones ("Minnie") Gresham Machen (1849-1931)

The youngest surviving child of John and Mary Gresham, Mary Jones ("Minnie") Gresham Machen (June 17, 1849-October 13, 1931) was educated at the Edgeworth School in Baltimore and the Wesleyan Female College in Macon, from which she graduated in 1865. On February 13, 1873, Minnie married Arthur W. Machen (1827-1915), a prominent Baltimore lawyer. Machen was the son of Caroline Webster and Lewis H. Machen, the principal clerk of the United States Senate from 1836 to 1859, and owner of "Walney," in Fairfax County, Virginia. The Arthur Machens had three sons. Arthur W. Machen, Jr. (1877-1950) followed his father into the law, while Thomas G. Machen (1886-1975) pursued a career in architecture. Middle son Rev. Dr. John Gresham Machen (1881-1937) became a well-known Presbyterian theologian. Minnie Gresham Machen was also a devout Presbyterian, reflected in her longtime membership in the Franklin Street Presbyterian Church in Baltimore and her authorship of The Bible in Browning, a book tracing the influence of the Bible on the poetry of Robert Browning. Like her brother Thomas, Minnie Machen is interred in Green Mount Cemetery in Baltimore.
