CDV of Harriet Sherburne Clapp, who married Moses Withington, Massachusetts

Carte de Visite of a woman identified on reverse as Harriet Sherburne Withington. The ID also includes her date of death: 8 March 1898. The photograph was taken by the Kimball studio of Concord, New Hampshire.

From online research, hopefully correct: [corrections welcome]

Harriet Sherburne Clapp was born 10 July 1818 at Dorchester, Massachusetts, the daughter of Joseph and Betsey (Tileston) Clapp. Some records have her maiden name as Clap.

Harriet became the second wife of Moses Withington on September 1, 1853.  Moses Withington was born December 1, 1810 at Brookline, Massachusetts, son of Enos and Patience (Leeds) Withington. His first wife, with whom he had at least three children, was Jane Clap, daughter of John and Priscilla (Holden) Clap.

Harriet and Moses had a daughter, Anna Sherburne Withington, born January 24, 1856 at Brookline, Massachusetts.

I'd like to know how it came about that Harriet was at Concord, New Hampshire, to have her photograph taken.
