7. Milliner's doll [Lucy], ca. 1840. Ht. 9 5/8 inches.

Our family are all from Ohio, including Lucy
[the doll]. My grandmother was a member
of an Ohio pioneer family, making Lucy far
over 100 years old....She was always to look at
and not to play with. She does not cause much
trouble. I might call and see her some time.
