DORR, Julia Caroline Ripley, author, born in Charleston, South Carolina, 13 February 1825. Her maternal grandparents were natives of France, who fled to South Carolina from San Domingo at the time of the servile insurrection in that island. She lost her mother when a child, and her father, William Young Ripley, a native of Vermont, removed shortly afterward to New York, and in 1830 to his native state, where he was one of the first to develop the Rutland marble quarries. In 1847 Miss Ripley married Seneca R. Dorr, then of New York, who shortly afterward went to Rutland, Vermont, and lived there till his death in 1884. She has written since early childhood, but her first published poem was sent to the "Union Magazine" by her husband, without her knowledge, a year or two after their marriage. In 1848 she became a contributor to " Sartain's Magazine," taking one of its hundred dollar prizes by her first published prose tale, "lsabel Leslie." She has since continued to contribute both prose and poetry to prominent periodicals. Mrs. Dorr's works include "Farmingdale," a novel, published under the pen name of "Caroline Thomas" (New York, 1854); " Lanmere," a novel (1856); "Sibyl Huntingdon," a novel (Philadelphia, 1869); " Poems" (1871); "Expiation," a novel (18'72); "Friar Ansehn, and other Poems" (New York, 1879); "Daybreak, an Easter Poem" (1882); "Bermuda" (1884); and "Afternoon Songs" (1885). A series of essays on marriage, contributed by Mrs. Dorr to a New England journal under the titles "Letters to a Young Wife"" and "Letters to a Young, Husband, has appeared in book form without her sanction, with the title "Bride and Bridegroom" (Cincinnati, 1873).
