Octavia Walton Le Vert, an American authoress, born near Augusta, Ga., about 1810. She is a granddaughter of George Walton, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Her father removed to Pensacola in 1821, having been appointed territorial secretary for Florida, under Gen. Jackson as governor. On the retirement of Jackson Mr. Walton acted for a time as governor. Although his daughter's education was exclusively domestic and confined to Pensacola, she became a proficient in the French, Spanish, and Italian languages, and obtained some knowledge of Latin and Greek, as well as of the sciences. She spent the winter of 1833-'4 in Washington, and during the debates upon the removal of the deposits was in the habit of writing such accurate reports that, it is said, Clay, Calhoun, Webster, McDuffie, and Preston were all in the habit of calling to read their own speeches from her portfolio. In 1836 she was married to Dr. Henry S. Le Vert, a physician of Mobile. She made two visits to Europe, the results of which have been given to the world in her "Souvenirs of Travel" (2 vols., New York, 1857). In 1874 she made her appearance as a public reader.
