First ordination

"The year 1866 saw the Rev. Helenor Davisson ordained as a Methodist Protestant deacon, the earliest known woman’s ordination in the Methodist tradition." That's five years after the Illinois Conference of the Wesleyan Methodist Connection ordained Mary Will as an elder. Unless I've grossly missed something, Wesleyan Methodists (now a part of The Wesleyan Church) have always been well within the Methodist tradition.
