Jane Campbell McKeever was an early leader in the American Restoration Movement through her founding of a college for women, similar to Bethany College for men established by her brother Alexander. Both siblings were highly intelligent, multitalented, deeply religious, and committed to family. There was,  however,  strong  disagreement  between  them  concerning  slavery  and  its abolition. Overall, Jane and Alexander agreed on the evils of slavery as practiced in America, but they disagreed almost completely on what to do about them.
