Julia Pettibone was born in Norfolk, CT, to Giles Pettibone Jr. and Louisa Pease Pettibone. Her sister Susannah is believed to have attended the Litchfield Female Academy around the year 1810. Susannah completed two mourning pictures for members of her family, one of which is currently held at the Norfolk Historical Society. While no records have been found listing Julia as a student of the school, it is possible that she also attended. Colonial Williamsburg owns a mourning picture completed by Julia around 1806, which they attribute as probably made in Litchfield while attending the Female Academy.
