Portrait of Eliza Webster Jones, circa 1825

Summary

This is Eliza Webster Jones, one of Noah Webster's eight children. Webster was a "family man," doting on his children and grandchildren and delighting in their activities. Eliza lived with her parents and the younger Webster siblings in the New Haven, Connecticut home after it was completed in 1823. She married Henry Jones in 1825, probably about the time this painting was done.
