Notes for Mary Elizabeth White:
Tombstone indicates the following:
"Mary Elizabeth w/o (wife of) Nathaniel H., Esq. d/o (daughter of) James White, Esq.
Portrait held by the New Brunswick Museum: Mary Elizabeth (White DeVeber) H: 76.5 cm x W 63.5 cm. "The subject of this firmly-handled head and shoulders oil on canvas portrait was at the time the wife of Nathaniel DeVeber, High Sheriff of Queens County. Her strong features are carefully observed, like those of her brother and there are technical similarities, particularly in the handling of their "Peabody" noses which, stroke for stroke, could almost be interchanged in the two portraits.The date assigned to this painting is again the 1820's to early 1830's, because the elaborate white cap, black gown with high ruched collar, and shoulder fur, are of that date.The gilt frame is ornamented with plaster designs, and until given to the New Brunswick Museum, this painting too descended in the family." (courtesy New Brunswick Museum). B&W Xerox of the image held by George Angus deVeber, Toronto, Canada.
