Cabinet Photo of Mrs. S. L. Everett; Portland, Maine studio; likely Sarah Love (Hudson) Everett

Cabinet photograph of a woman identified as Mrs. S. L. Everett. The photograph was taken at the Lamson studio of Portland, Maine.

I believe the woman pictured is Sarah Love (Hudson) Everett. If you think she is another Mrs. S. L. Everett, please leave a comment.

From brief online research, hopefully correct - corrections and additions requested:

Sarah Love Hudson was born February 27, 1825 at Portland, Maine, the daughter of John Bradley Hudson and wife Harriet (Bagley) Hudson, born in Boston, Massachusetts, and Portland, Maine, respectively.

On September 4, 1845 at Portland, Maine, Sarah married Sea Captain Timothy Everett, who was born about 1819 at Gouldsboro, Maine, possibly in the village of Prospect Harbor, the son of Henry and Sarah (Cole) Everett.

Like others in his family, Capt. Everett would die at sea.  He was captain of the bark Louise, as she set sail on March 4, 1869 from Portland, Maine. The Louise sank with all hands on board. At the time Timothy, wife Sarah Love (Hudson) Everett and their family had been living at Bath, Maine.

Sarah and Timothy had five children. Two boys died young. Their surviving children were:
  1. Ella Marguerita Everett, born 1847 at Bath, Maine 
  2. Sarah Hay Everett, born 1853. Online sources say she was born at Southhampton, England. If this is true, Sarah must have sailed with Timothy on at least one of his voyages. 
  3. Edward Sewall Everett, born 4 November 1855 at Bath, Maine. Married Lena Marston Josselyn, daughter of William Harrison Josselyn and wife Mary Marston. Lived at Portland, Maine, where he was a businessman; died 1914
