Anne Eliza Brainerd (October 7, 1819 - ?) in St. Albans, Vermont. Her parents were Lawrence Brainerd and Fidelia B. Gadcombe. Anne Brainerd married John Gregory Smith in 1842 and together they had six children. Anne loved to write and she created essays, poems and other miscellaneous works. She was most known for her three famous novels titled Seola, Selma and Atla. Her first published work was called From Dawn to Sunrise and its success caused Henry K. Adams, author of A Centennial History of St. Albans Vermont to call it, "The smartest book ever written in Vermont". From Dawn to Sunrise (1876) dealt with the historical and philosophical religious ideas of mankind. The second work was the novel Seola (1878) which was written as an antediluvian diary. The next novel published was Selma (1883) which was a Viking love story. The third novel, called Atla (1886), was about the sinking of the legendary lost island called Atlantis. In 1924 Seola was revised by an unknown author and was retitled as Angels and Women. Anne Smith credits herself as author of these books with the titles, Mrs. J.G. Smith, Mrs. J. Gregory Smith and J.G. Smith. In one special case she gives no credit to herself, or anyone else for that matter, with the novel Seola. It can be found that The Library of Congress has cataloged Seola as the work of Mrs. J. Gregory Smith. The author of Angels and Women still remains a secret to this day and the Library of Congress still gives Mrs. J. Gregory Smith the credit for its work.
