I posted some information about that town HERE.
|Newbury when it was first settled.|
I've briefly honored this interesting woman before, HERE. And her more famous brother, Joseph P. Pulsifer HERE, one of the founding fathers of Beaumont, Texas.
|1820s woman, by Francesco Heyez, NOT Ms. Pulsifer!|
|GRANGER, George T. and Lucy E.Pulsifer, Feb. 13, 1828 * (*intentions also recorded)|
I mentioned Lucy's husband in another post HERE, following his life and probably hers along the trails that settlers to the new country in Texas followed. The above link goes to the post which best describes the lives they led, since he was fortunately mentioned in various records that still exist.
|Dwelling #338 has George (Lumber Dealer) and Lucy age 42, living with 4 children and 2 other women.|
In 1854 they lived still in Newburyport, MA as shown by the City Directory:
|Name:||George T Granger|
|Street address:||16 Boardman|
|Residence Place:||Newburyport, Massachusetts, USA|
|Publication Title:||Newburyport, Massachusetts, City Directory, 1854|
|More on her life, including a letter to her from her daughter in 1860...tomorrow!|
I share this post with Sepia Saturday. I've missed a couple of weeks, because I just don't have photos on the topics which have been coming along...but I'm always interested to go look at what others have come up with...HERE!
Don't miss my continuing saga about Galveston history...chapter 1 was yesterday.
