Fannie Stockton

Biography: 

(1847?-1870)

A vocalist who sang in both Italian and English language opera in New York in the 1860s, Fannie Stockton also performed in the musical extravaganzas of the immediate post-Civil War period. She occasionally had pitch problems in performance, as in an 1869 English language version of "The Marriage of Figaro" sung in New York City, but her beauty and her acting skills made her a manager's choice. She resided in Buffalo, New York, when not touring. David S. Shields/ALS
