FADER family Robbinston, Maine

Came across 150 year old newspaper articles in No. Calif. newspaper dated Dec. 27, 1862 re Anne K. H. Fader, "the sweet California poetess". She was returning home to Robbinston, Maine "in hopes to regain the health which appears to have forsaken her." In other articles and local history she was always referred to as sweet and beautiful. Likely because she was one of the few educated and refined young women in the wild gold rush days of Trinity County, CA. I found several of her poems had been published in various places: "Who is Like a Mother?" "Oh, Leave Me in the Morning" "Night on California Hills" "Baby Annie" "Pencillings by Moonlight" Have found little else on her but thought I would share what I have. I do not know whether she is a Fader by birth or marriage - I suspect by birth as her poems are not written by "Mrs." Fader, which was the usual style for married women in those days.
