Georgiana Wells Sargent was born May 10th 1858 to John Sargent and Georgiana Welles. Her father John Sargent was the older half-brother of Catherine Sargent Sumner and Hannah Sargent Huntington. In 1861 Georigana's family moved to Europe, because her mother had become ill. They lived in Europe until Georgiana was 15 years old. Georgiana was close with her Huntington cousins, especially Mary Lincoln Huntington (whom Georgiana sent postcards to). In 1923, she was living in Lenox, unmarried, but devoted to gardening as she was throughout her life. Georgiana died in 1946 at eighty eight years old.
