Judson, Emily Chubbuck

Judson, Emily Chubbuck wife of Dr. Adoniram Judson, was born in Eaton, N.Y. Aug. 22, 1818. She contributed to the magazine literature of the country in early life under the assumed title of "Fanny Forester." She had contemplated becoming a missionary from early life, and marrying Dr. Judson June 2, 1846, she sailed with him from Boston for India, where she "employed all her strength in advancing the holy cause in which he was engaged." After his decease she was compelled, by reason of feeble health, to relinquish her mission work, and returned with her children to America. She rendered good service to Dr. Wayland in the preparation of his memoir of Dr. Judson. She died June 1, 1854. Her published works are, Alderbrook; a collection of Fanny Forester's Village Sketches and Poems" (Boston, 1846, 2 vols.); and the "Biographical Sketch of Mrs. Sarah B. Judson" quoted below. There are besides a goodly number of separate poems, of exquisite beauty of sentiment and of great pathos, of which we mention only My Bird and The two Mammas. See Wayland, Life and Labors of Adoniram Judson (Boston, 1854, 2 vols. 8vo); Calcutta Review, vol. 14; The Judson Offering, edited by J. Dowling D.D. (New York, 1848), Biographical Sketch of Sarah B.
