She was born in her Grandmother Taylor's home, "Willow Hall", between Clinton and High Bridge.
After graduating from Wellesley College in 1889, she began teaching at Miss Porter's in Farmington, CT. She studied at Oxford 1895 - 1897.
By 1911, she was "an author of considerable ability" and very well traveled. "In Cambridge Backs" was published and in 1912, "Solitude Letters." In 1938, she published" Oliver Cromwell: A Dictator's Tragedy." During her travels in the British Isles she visited ancestral homes and met with Blauvelt/ Taylor cousins upon many occasions. She shared her visits with her parents and siblings through copious letters, which we have. She never married and adored her Blauvelt nieces and their children.
The last 2 or 3 years of her life, she lived with her niece's Stanton family in Grosse Ile, MI. Her grand-nephew, who was then at Oxford, remembers that she was a chain smoker,lighting one from the other. Sparks would fly as she coughed, making everyone very nervous. But, her conversation never lagged.
