*The silhouettes of General (then Captain) James Totten and his wife
Julia Hubbell (Thatcher) Totten which illustrate this record were cut at
Saratoga, New York, in .August 1844, liy ,\ugnst Edouarl, the celebratecl
silhouettist of France and England, who was the appointed silhouettist to
the Royal Family in France.

In 1839 Edouart visited the United States and here remained 10 years
during which time he cut between three and four thousand silhouettes of
well known .-Kmericans and their wives and families. It was the custom with
this artist when cutting the silhouette to cut it in duplicate, one copy he
delivered to his patron and one he kept himself upon which copy he had his
patron place his signature and the date of the sitting, to which the artist
himself added a note as to height, weight and color of eyes and hair of the
patron; this retained copy the artist placed in his scrap book for future
reference. In 1849 Edouart sailed for home on the Ship Oneida and on
the return voyage to France on December loth, 1849, the vessel was wrecked
oflf the coast of the Island of Guernsey, and while most of the baggage was
lost, Edouart's chests containing his scrap books were saved and brought
ashore. Edouart himself was taken into the home of an inhabitant of the
island and most hospitably treated after his tragic experience: and on
leaving presented to the (laughter of his host, Frederica Lukis his entire
collection of silhouttes w'hich had been so fortunately saved. This collection
passed from Frederica Lukis to her grandson who in time sold
it to Mrs. F. Nevill Jackson of London, Eng., and many of the English
silhouettes found their way into museums and galleries in England; and in
1913 the .\merican silhouettes of the collection (the last that Edouart ever
cut) came to this country and were displayed for sale by .Arthur S. Vernay.

Notice was .sent to me by Mr. Vernay of the existence in the collection
of these two portraits of my parents, of the existence of which I was in
complete ignorance, as the originals had disappeared during the varied army
career of my father and mother ; and I visited the gallery very skeptical
as to the authenticity of the protraits. I was at once convinced of their
genuineness by the marked resemblance to herself of my mother's protrait,
and by her undeniable signature on the back of the silhouette, and also of
the validity of my father's portrait from his signature which was the same
in 1844 as at the time of his death in 1871. In both cases the physical
description written by Edouart on the back of each silhouette tallied with

T ' Swift-Gibbs. Her mother was Mattie R. Perry,

See No. 1513, whose husband's name I do not know.
The Gibbs' family lot in West Genoa Cemetery at King's Ferry,
N. Y., has in it only three gravestones: those of Henry Gibbs,
Welthen Gibbs and Nancy Thatcher. Henry Gibbs died June 17,
1868, aged 85 years (hence born 1788). Welthen Gibbs died April
9th, 1880, aged 92 years, 4 mo. and 20 days (hence born November
19th, 1787). Henry and Welthen Gibbs may have been the parents
of Roland Thacher Gibbs. Nancy Thatcher was the aunt of Mrs.
Roland Thacher Gibbs and was the daughter of Jethro" Thacher,
see Record No. 325 and also Record No. 886. I presume that
Welthen Gibbs really means Wealthy Ann Gibbs and that she was
the wife of Henry Gibbs, as the dates of their births and deaths are
such as to suggest that they were husband and wife. It is possible
that Henry Gibbs was the grandson of John Gibbs of Sandwich,
Mass., who married Jerusha" Thacher, see record No. 339.
