Ann (nee Hasseltine) Judson (1789-1826) was the first female American missionary to travel abroad. She was born in Massachusetts, married Adoniram Judson in 1810, and travelled with him to India and Burma as a missionary.
Thomas Illman (fl. 1820-1860) and Pilbrow (fl. 1820-1840) were printmakers and publishers, active in New York, working in collaboration.
