Her eyes were blue (gray), her hair black, rather coarse while Grandsir's [Josiah Tilton, her husband] was rather fine. Her voice good - an excellent singer - sang counter - powerful voice, high pitch, was broad chested and shouldered and no hips, large hand, medium sized foot, high in instep - (father made her shoes numerous times). She was a woman of great executive ability, physical force, clear, strong mind and naturally high tempered yet pleasant. (M's comment was amiable, easy tempered and lover of home.)

Some points in baptism and perhaps in outward form and appearance she different in from Grandsir - he was sometimes disagreeable.
