Mason, Mary (Johnson), Lady

The second wife of Sir Joseph, and mother of Lucius.

“In person she was tall and comely…. Her. forehead was high …and gave evidence of considerable mental faculties…. Her eyes were large and well formed, but some-what cold. Her nose was long and regular. Her mouth also was very regular, and her teeth perfectly beautiful; but her lips were straight and thin…. The quietness and repose of her manner suited her years and her position; age had given fullness to her tall form; and the habitual sadness of her countenance was fair in accordance with her condition and character.”
