In 1820, when she was 38 years old, on March 4th, Maine became the 23rd state in the United States as the result of the Missouri Compromise.

In 1837, by the time she was 55 years old, on June 20th, 18-year-old Queen Victoria became the Queen of the United Kingdom upon the death of her uncle William IV - who had died without legitimate heirs. She would reign for more than 63 years, the longest reign of an English monarch until Queen Elizabeth II. Thus began what would be called the "Victorian Era."

In 1846, at the age of 64 years old, Jemima was alive when on February 26th, the Liberty Bell was rung for George Washington's birthday. It is said that when it was rung, a previous crack was worsened, leading to the crack seen today. A paper of the time said that at "around noon, it was discovered that the ringing had caused the crack to be greatly extended, and that the old Independence hangs in the great city steeple irreparably cracked and forever dumb".

In 1856, in the year of Jemima (Wells) Sturgill's passing, on January 26th the Battle of Seattle occurred.
