Biography

Mother Alphonsa was born to Nathaniel Hawthorne and his wife Sophia Hawthorne, and baptised as Rose Hawthorne. Sophia was assisted in the birth by her father, Dr. Nathaniel Peabody. Her father wrote of Rose's birth to his friend Horatio Bridge, comparing her to a book: "Mrs. Hawthorne published a little work, two months ago, which still lies in sheets; but, I assure you, it makes some noise in the world, both by day and night. In plain English, we have another little red-headed daughter—a very bright, strong, and healthy imp, but, at present, with no pretentions to beauty." On July 28, 1851, Sophia took the newborn with her older sister Una to visit family in West Newton, Massachusetts.
