Biography
Susan Binney was the daughter of Dr. Barnabas Binney and his wife Mary Woodrow Binney of Philadelphia, and the sister of Philadelphia lawyer Horace Binney (1780-1875). Horace, educated at Harvard, was admitted to the Pennsylvania bar in 1800, embarking upon a career in which he ultimately became the ackowledged leader of the Pennsylvania bar. Susan married John Bradford Wallace, also of Philadelphia, and had at least two sons, John William Wallace (1815-1884), and Horace Binney Wallace. Horace commissioned a portrait of himself for Susan from the artist Gilbert Stuart; that painting is now in the NGA (1944.3.1).[Compiled from sources and references recorded on CMS]
