unusualvintage American born stage actress Miss Grace Hawthorne (Priscilla A. Cartland), who operated two theatres in London during the 1880's and 90's. She may look angelic but was in fact later tried and convicted for being an accomplice in an attempted murder. She was born in my home state of Maine.🌲 Original Carte-De-Visite photographed by "Van Der Weyde". Circa 1890 from my collection.
"American theatre manager Miss Grace Hawthorne (born ca.1847 in Maine; died 23 May 1922, London, England), "a tall, handsome American actress", who had starred as Zoe in The Octoroon in the 1880s, and former lessee of the Princess's Theatre, London and the Olympic Theatre, London, who "must have had abundant means of her own or else was backed by others who had, for she met failure after failure with a grim determination to go on at all costs". She was born Priscilla A. Cartland, daughter of Asa Cartland, an innkeeper on Levant Road, and Priscilla Godwin; first married John Murray, at Kensington, England; later married to Bernard Sargeant de Santleys (born 1877 in London; died 23 June 1912 in New York). Arrested in 1915 in New York as an accomplice in an attempted murder."

How gorgeous is my Grandma Mauzy? (on the right.) She was raised in Massachusetts so I think she was happy to get married and move to the desert.
