Amelia Edith Barr [nee, Huddleston] (March 29, 1831 - March 10, 1919) was a British- American novelist. In 1850, she married William Barr, and four years later they immigrated to the United States and settled in Galveston, Texas where her husband and three of their six children died of yellow fever in 1867. By 1891, when she had achieved greater success, she and her remaining daughters moved up the Hudson River to Cornwall-on-Hudson, New York, where they renovated a house on the slopes of Storm King Mountain, and named it Cherry Croft.
