The Pacific Mills working regulations document shows that Caroline Atwell was working at the mill in 1854 after the death of her parents. I may be wrong on this but it appearing that Pacific Mills was incorporated 1853, and commenced operation 1854 in Lawrence, Massachusetts. The facility had 1600 looms, 62,000 spindles, 26 overseers, employed 800 males and 1100 females.
