I am not a Jessup, but thought somebody might find this interesting.
Greenpoint [Brooklyn] Daily Star - July 13, 1898
She Will Take the Veil
Miss Maggie JESSUP One of the Sisters of St. Joseph.
Miss Maggie JESSUP of 116 Noble street, Greenpoint, is about to take the veil as one of the Order of the Sisters of St. Joseph, in Flushing. She is only twenty years of age, but has long been determined to take this step, even against the dissuasions of friends. With the close of the present school year she gave up teaching at Public School No. 108, in East New York. She is a graduate of St. Anthony’s Parochial School and of the Academy of Our Lady of Victory in Brooklyn. The Sisters of St. Joseph are usually teachers. They conduct the girls’ department of the parochial school of St. Anthony’s. It is no doubt likely that Miss JESSUP, under the new name which she is to assume when she takes her vow to retire from the world, will continue in her career as a teacher for which she is admirably fitted, and for which attainment she studied so long. A sister, Miss Dora JESSUP, recently graduated at the Training School. A brother, Michael JESSUP is now studying at the Jesuit College, Frederick City, Md., He was previously for two years at the College of St. Francis Xavier. John J. JESSUP, of the Sixty-first Precinct, is a brother.
