This announcement appeared in an 1821 issue of the Massachusetts Spy. At the time, Mrs. Peabody and her 16-year-old daughter, Elizabeth, were about to open a school in Lancaster. Unfortunately, the school proved unsuccessful and the Peabody family moved away not long thereafter. Elizabeth (1804-1894) was prominent in the 19th century as an educator, writer, and first woman publisher in Boston. Her younger sisters, Sophia and Mary, married writer Nathaniel Hawthorne and educator Horace Mann, respectively.
