Carrie was the Jersey maiden who brought the portrait of Samuel Meeker to California. (Carrie had two sisters with no children, so she inherited the portrait.) Her father was Thomas Mulford Martin, his mother was Mary Brookfield who was the daughter of Phoebe Meeker.
Phoebe Meeker was the twin sister of Samuel Meeker, sitter in the portrait. Through logic and events, I have deduced that Samuel gifted his portrait by Stuart to his twin sister on their 40ieth birthday. Most likely at a celebration/ball at their country estate on the Schuylkill, Fountain Green.
NOTE THE SIMILARITY of Carrie's lips to the shape of Samuel's mouth. The shape of the face, the cheekbones, the chin... Astonishingly distinctive! This not only offers validation of the family provenance, but also of Stuart's amazing ability to nail the image of the sitter.
