Death: Feb. 13, 1927

Born at Skowhegan, Maine, daughter of Congregational minister George Whitefield Hathaway and Mary Susanna (Locke) Hathaway. She became engaged to Jotham Bixby and crossed the Isthmus of Panama and arrived in San Francisco to marry him. They were married December 4, 1862, by a missionary to the Choctaw Indians. For years she and her husband lived at San Juan Bautista where they raised sheep.

In 1866 they moved to the Rancho Los Cerritos which they purchased as part of a newly organized family firm known as Flint, Bixby & Co. In 1881 part of it would be subdivided to become the American Colony, the town portion of the colony eventually becoming the City of Long Beach.

She was mother to seven children: George H. (1864-1922); Mary (1869-1870), Harry Llewellyn (1870-1902), Margaret (1873-1878), Rosamond Read (1877-1899), Fanny Weston (1879-1930), Jotham Winslow (1908-1945).
