Marie Huger Lowndes (Abt 1832-1915)
Otherwise known as Mrs. Edward Laight Cottenet. Not much else to be known specifically about her but after googling the husbands name I see that Marie has a serious family tree, so many of the prominent Charleston names are there such as Huger, Lowndes, Middleton, Elliot, Harleston, Izard, her mothers father was a senator, her dad's father was a governor and so, as the story goes for all copied miniatures, its all in the lineage. Complete November 2012.
