Gallery Copy: Many of the owners of property shown on this 1846 map are women, and some of them are closely related. Abel H. Clemons was the father of Anna Clemons. Another daughter, Lucy, married John T. Peters. Peters died in 1878 and notations added after that date show property that formerly belonged to Julia Stoaddard and Dotha Patrick as part of his estate. A portion of this property is identified Peters's "Widow's Dower." Lucy Peters died in Hartford on February 21, 1885.
