 ROSAMUND THAXTER  (continued)

Celia and Levi's granddaughter they never met became their best known biographer. Rosamund's book "Sandpiper" remains an excellent introduction to the history of the Thaxter and Laighton families at the Isles of Shoals. Ms. Thaxter kept a cottage on Smuttynose Island that is still used by stranded  off-season sailors and a scenic spit of land at Crescent Beach and Seapoint Beach in Kittery, Maine is dedicated in her honor.
