Adeline Morgan Thompson

Adeline Morgan Thompson was born around 1799. She married Allen Thompson, a printer in Philadelphia, and together they had eight children. In this portrait, her simple hairstyle and fashionably revealing dress emphasize her elegant jewelry and make her appear younger than her forty years.
