Anna Pope (1784-1826) was the fourth child and only daughter of the Reverend Joseph Pope (1745-1859) of Spencer, Massachusetts. Her father was the pastor of the Church of Christ in Spencer from 1773 until 1818. On September 2, 1810, Anna married Roswell Shurtleff (1773-1851) of East Windsor, Connecticut, who became professor of divinity at Dartmouth College. They had five children.
After her death her husband Professor Shurtleff said, "She was truly an helpmeet—one who did me good and not evil all the days of her life." By her vivacity and cheerfulness she was eminently fitted to comfort him in his hours of suffering and depression. But it pleased God to take her from him in March, 1826, after having enjoyed with her, during sixteen years, a degree of domestic happiness which rarely falls to the lot of man."
