Susanne Correy (1749-about 1812) married Colonel James Read (1743-1822) in 1770. Read served in the Continental army and fought at the Battle of Camden in South Carolina. He later went on to become head of the Navy Board in 1781. This stickpin miniature also contains a second image in the back of the locket, possibly of Susanne’s older sister, Mary (Mrs. Joseph Carson).
