544. Sophia Elliot20 was born on 18 June 1823 in Brattleboro, Windham Co., VT. "You speak of Sophia [Elliot Smith] (your sister and my cousin) and her husband, Gilbert. Sophy is indeed one of the 'great' girls and if she has a lover worthy of her-they say she has-their little home ought to contain as much happiness to the cubic foot as any other house under the moon--no doubt it does. I can see her 'in my mind's eye' as real as life as she stepped along over the shining snow which crached under our feet as we trudged down from grand mother's to her then home last winter a year ago. I'd go without my dinner to see you and her once again to-night..." She died on 28 May 1904 in West Brattleboro, Windham Co., VT.
