Anyone know the full details (years) on Mrs. Lavinia Bowen? She's commemorated in the eponym ...
lavinia as in:
• Rufous-winged Tanager Tangara lavinia CASSIN 1858 (here) as "Calliste Lavinia" later amended (with no sucess I assume) into laviniæ (by Cassin himself, in 1860, here, also used in 1864, here) a k a "Lavinia's Tanager"
This far the most detailed account of her life, that I´ve found, is as below (quoted in full, as that web-page tend to move around now and then!):
Anything to add? Anyone?
PS. Not to confuse with the generic (synonym) Lavinia.

"Lavinia Bowen, and Bowen's sister Patience Davis Leslie" worked on a butterfly book by William Henry Edwards. The Eponym Dictionary describes Lavinia as nee Davis.
"Lavinia (Lydia) Bowen (nee Davis) (1820–1888),. with the assistance of her sister, Patience Davis Leslie. (1826–1893)" From The Extraordinary Story of an Artistic and Scientific Masterpiece: The Butterflies of North America by William Henry Edwards.
