The lady pictured above is my 3rd great-grandmother Mary Ann Hitchcock Pinkerton.
She was the youngest out of seven children born to Alured Hitchcock and Sarah Warner Stevens 17 June 1824 in Vergennes, Vermont. Both of her parents come from a long line of New England Colonial families.
Mary Ann married David M. Pinkerton, Jr., a missionary preacher, on 27 October 1845 in Galesburg, Illinois. They spent the next twenty-five years of their married life as missionaries. Along the way, they had nine children.
Mary Ann passed away at her daughter Mary home on 8 November 1908 in Northfield, Minnesota.
Thank you for reading.
