Title

Hannah Grushon Deweese (1818-1884)

Description

Hannah Deweese was married to Cornelius DeWeese and lived on a 900 acre farm, Hunter’s Bottom, in Carol County, Kentucky. She was in her 30s when this portrait was painted of her, with what appears to be hair and/or mourning jewelry, including a brooch similar in style to pieces in the Filson's collection (see 1962.3.1 & 1962.3.3), a bracelet, and a ring. When Hannah died in 1884, eight of her thirteen children preceded her in death.
