About Roxana Ward Beecher

Roxana Foote, Lyman Beecher’s first wife and Harriet’s mother, was a granddaughter of Revolutionary General Andrew Ward, was literate, artistic, and read mathematical and scientific treatises for pleasure. She had seven children.

Lyman & Roxana started a select girl's school. At the time that they started the school, they had Roxana's sister living with them. I think this was Mary because she helped teach at the school. Also living with them was a housekeeper and two bound servants (black girls) named Zillah & Rachel to care for the children and do the cooking.
