Caroline M. Poor (1855-1919) was born in Derby, Vermont, and died in Boston, Massachusetts. She studied with Mary Baker Eddy in October and joined the Church of Christ (Scientist) in December of 1881. Poor also conducted some Sunday services for the Church at her home at 95 Main Street in Charlestown, Massachusetts, at the beginning of 1882, while Mary Baker Eddy was visiting Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Poor's husband, George, was the music director for the Church during this time and her daughter, Georgietta, was the pianist. Poor appears to have drifted away from the Christian Science movement in the spring of 1883.
