Dear Abigail Biographer Diane Jacobs recalls the relationship between first lady Abigail Adams and her sisters, Elizabeth Shaw Peabody and Mary Cranch. The sisters from Weymouth, Massachusetts, stayed in constant correspondence throughout their lives, sharing their personal setbacks and achievements. In her book, the author reports that each of the sisters received public recognition; from eldest sister Mary’s de facto mayorship of her village to youngest sister Elizabeth, who with her husband, co-founded the second co-educational school in the United States. Diane Jacobs spoke at the Adams National Historic Park Visitors Center in Quincy, Massachusetts. close
