Lavinia Warren Bumpus Stratton (1841 - 1919), wife of Charles Stratton AKA General Tom Thumb. I believe her stage name was Thumblina. Both she and Tom met the Lincoln's and were well traveled and educated. Please note she is not a midget but a dwarf as she is perfectly proportioned. A very lovely lady.
