Fanny Haven bought acreage in Jaffrey, N.H. in the 1890's, and had this house built in 1897; she owned it until she died, in 1924.
June 21 1902, Ellen: "I am here at Jaffrey, with my sister, who I try to visit every summer. Her house is a colonial one on a rather small scale, but quite large enough, and is so dainty in its appointments and so comfortable -- it is real country, the people simple and primitive and so refreshing."

Born near N.O., he was a lawyer, member of the House of Representatives of Louisiana; in 1831 was appointed deputy attorney general of his state; in 1833 became presiding judge of the city court of New Orleans, and in 1834 was elected as a Jackson Democrat to the United States Senate.
