|Unidentified 1860's Vergennes, VT woman|
www.oldmaps.com he participated in mapping Vermont between 1854-1859 in "extraordinary detail" with other mapmakers. "The results of this work were eleven large wall maps which pictured the state of Vermont in remarkable detail." He is credited on the surface of the Addison County map as "Daguerrean Artist" J. H. Stearns and thirteen views of his photographs of local homes and businesses with names of property owners adorn the map. I found a mention of his wife's death in 1882 in the Vermont Chronicle but nothing more of Mr. Stearns after that.
