Young Poetess


From the Biography and Poetical Remains of the late Margaret Miller Davidson, by Washington Irving:

Margaret Miller Davidson, the youngest daughter of Dr. Oliver and Mrs. Margaret Davidson, was born...in the village of Plattsburgh, March 26, 1823.  She and her sister, Lucretia, were young poets.  She [Margaret] departed this life on the 25th of November 1838, aged fifteen years and eight months; her earthly remains repose in the grave yard of the village of Saratoga.
