Virginia Chandler Titcomb, originally from Otterville, Illinois, was an active painter, photographer, and writer in New York during the late nineteenth century. She was born in 1838 to Juliana (Humiston) and Hiram Chandler. Titcomb was a descendant of Captain Miles Standish who arrived in Plymouth aboard the Mayflower in 1620. On her mother’s side she was descended from Matthias Hitchcock, a founder of New Haven, Connecticut.[1] In 1869 she married John Abbott Titcomb, a dealer in flour and grain, from Farmington, Maine. Together, the couple had three children named Charles Chandler Titcomb, Harold Abbott Titcomb, and Leila White Titcomb.[2]
