Well-known and popular poet Hannah Flagg Gould died at her home in Newburyport, Massachusetts.  She had lost her mother at an early age and spent much of her life caring for her Revolutionary War veteran father.  She published her first volume of poems in 1841 and followed with many well-regarded pieces, largely demonstrating religious and patriotic feelings.  (By John Osborne)
