Mary A. Damon (c.1830-1901) was born in Windsor, Vermont, and died in Lynn, Massachusetts. She was a student of Mary Baker Eddy's, studying with her in the fall of 1879. She joined the Christian Scientist Association in a meeting held in Lynn at her home (22 Jackson Street) on November 22, 1879. She united with the Church of Christ (Scientist) on January 4, 1880, and was elected its Treasurer on December 15, 1880. She asked to be dismissed from the Christian Scientist Association in October 1881; on November 9, 1881, she asked for dismissal from the Church and resigned as Treasurer. Since she did not pay the requisite dismissal fee of $2.00, she was not officially dismissed from the Association until March 28, 1883, when she paid the fee. After leaving the Christian Science movement, she continued to practice as a metaphysician in Lynn until about 1892.
