Mary Stetson Hanover PA
Posted by: Deborah Brower (ID *****0328) Date: November 02, 2007 at 08:44:12

I recently purchased a hand written poem from the early to mid 19th century.
It mentions a name and a location Mary Stetson, Hanover. I'm assuming it's Pennsylvania since I bought it near Reading. It's also noted the poem was taken from the "london gazette". The poem's subject is a little disturbing, it seems to be an allegory on spousal abuse. It may even be some sort of memorial piece. The space below the poem is filled with a drawing of what appears to be a headstone (with the name Mary Stetson on it) below a spread eagle carrying two crossed bunches of plant fronds. This is flanked by two urns on pedestals sprouting more droopy fronds. Any ideas about the identity of Mary Stetson would be helpful,

thanks
