who was the female that recoppied the declaration of independance
(she didn't write it but rewrote it after thomas jefferson had finished it because of her nice hand writing)
Go to Archives dot gov. There is a link to a history of the declaration of independence. BTW, the site contains the following sentence:
"Timothy Matlack was probably the engrosser of the Declaration."
Not exactly a female name, but there you have it.
