1 146 Clarissa,^ b. in Andover, Mass., Feb. 26,1801; met her death on Sunday

morning, Jan. 6, 1884, being crushed by a moving train as she was attempt-
ing to cross the track of the Erie railway at 2d street in the city of El-
mira, on her way to attend church. She had been a school teacher for
upward of forty years, commencing at Goffstown. N. H., in iSiS; next in
Manchester, N. H. After tliat she went to what was then the province of
Maine, and taught for one summer at Sunkhase on the Penobscot river. In
182 1 she sailed for Savannah, Ga., and spent five years in teaching in that
state ; at Sandersville, Washington Co., in Columbia Co., at Eatonton, and
at Covington; returned to her father's house in Bedford, N. H., in 1826,
and in the winter of 1826 taught a school in Royalston, Mass. In 1827
she taught the female department of the academy in Prattsburg, Steuben
Co., N. Y. She was vice-piincipal of the young ladies seminary in Ge-
neva, N. Y., in 1831, and was connected many years with that quite famous
institution, until in 1S46 she founded the institution known as " The El-
mira I^adies' Seminary," which became, and continued to be, one of the
most celebrated schools in the state. As a teacher she attained great ce-
lebrity, having herself been educated at the school of Rev. Joseph Emer-
son at Byfield, Mass., from among whose pupils went out such distin-
guished educators as Miss Z. P. Grant and Miss Mary Lyon. Miss Thurs-
ton pul)lished several books of a religious character, which met with grate-
ful acceptance from the public. Altho advanced in years she was vigor-
ous and strong, and might fairly have counted upon living to a great age,
but for the fatal catastrophe that overtook her.
