Susannah Pritchard Wayland was the daughter of the Rev. Francis and Sarah (Moore) Wayland of Saratoga Springs, New York. She was the sister of Francis Wayland (1796-1865) who became the president of Brown University. She married William Leete Stone, Sr., in 1817. This miniature was probably painted shortly after her marriage.
