HOLMAN, Lucia (Ruggles) [1793-1886] -- American missionary, teacher and writer

Relationship to me: 1C6
RUGGLES family Outline Descent Tree(s) ODT
Contents:

A teacher before her marriage to Dr. Thomas Holman , she accompanied him and her brother, Samuel Ruggles , and his wife as missionaries to the Hawaiian Islands in 1819.

Mrs. Holman is believed to be the first American woman to circumnavigate the globe:

  1. Boston to Kailua, Hawaii (23 Oct 1819 - 04 Apr 1820, brig "Thaddeus")
  2. Hawaii to Boston, via Canton and the Cape of Good Hope (30 Jul 1820 - 15 May 1822, whaler "Mentor")
Portions of her Journal, written aboard the Thaddeus and during their stay at Kailua, contained valuable ethnological material and were published in 1931. (Does anyone know the details of the publication of her journal? I would be most appreciative of hearing them!)
