Anna Matilda McNeill was born in Wilmington in 1804 and spent her early life there. She later married George Washington Whistler, and they were the parents of James McNeill Whistler. Whistler later immortalized his mother with a world-famous painting, \"Whistler's Mother.\" Now Wilmington has plans to erect some kind of appropriate memorial in her honor.
Made famous by the portrait done by her son, Mathilda McNeill Whistler was born in North Carolina, part of the long-standing McNeill Clan.
