Parmelia is my Great, Great Grandmother and my namesake for my Polyvore character. She died of cholera at the age of 30 years on this day, August 2, 1842 - leaving 4 children - the youngest who was one year old - my Great Grandmother Martha Elizabeth. Blessed are those who die in the Lord!

What a sad story. What an elegant tribute. I'll wager she is proud of her descendant.
