She was educated for the profession of teaching at the Hartford female seminary, and taught in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and New Milford and Hartford, Connecticut, removed to New Albany in order to take charge of an academy, and in September, 1839, married Franklin Thurston, a merchant of that place.
