Rebecca Usher was the daughter of Ellis Baker Usher and Hannah Lane.
The oldest of four sisters, she studied and later taught French at the Ursuline Convent in Three Rivers, Canada.
By the age of 20 she had returned to Maine.
Little is known of Rebecca's days before the war, but she likely occupied herself with teaching and managing the family estate.
