This is a photo of Euphius McDowell Halsey, housed in a wooden frame surrounded by a rippling gold-like trim.
Euphius McDowell Halsey was born in Kingston Pennsylvania on May 26, 1784. She was the third child of Robert and Margaret McDowell. In 1806, she would go on to marry Nicoll Halsey on August 10th. Nicoll was the son of the U.S. Representative Silas Halsey, born in Southampton and would later go on to become a Representative of New York himself. Shortly after their marriage, Nicoll would move to Tompkins County and settled near Trumansburg in 1808, presumably alongside Euphius.
