PAGE, Emily Rebecca, poet, born in Bradford, Vermont, 5 May, 1834; died in Chelsea, Massachusetts, 14 February, 1862. She was educated in the academies at Bradford and St. Johnsbury, Vermont, and began in 1846 to contribute poems to the Portland " Transcript." Later she wrote both prose and poetry for the "Carpet-Bag," the "Ladies' Repository," and an annual called the " Rose-Bud" (Boston, 1854-'5). She was for several years a constant contributor to the publications of Maturin M. Ballou (q. v.), and an assistant in the editorial work. "The Old Canoe" and others of her poems were, on their appearance, attributed to various distinguished authors. That and "Haunted" are printed in " Poets and Poetry of Vermont" (Boston, 1860). " The Old Bridge," "Mabel," "My Angels," and " Watching" are also well known. "Lily of the Valley" was issued in book-form (Boston, 1859).
