This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Mary Teresa Menton was born in Boston, Massachusetts on November 18, 1847, Mary Murphy moved to California as a child and in 1868 married Colonel William H. Menton in Santa Clara.  During the 1870s she settled in San Francisco where she studied at the School of Design under Mathews, Yelland, and Joullin, and privately with William Keith.  In 1895 she had a studio at 414 Pine Street next door to Keith and a home at 305 Larkin. Following the earthquake of 1906, in which many of her works were lost, she spent two years in Mexico. Mrs. Menton died in San Francisco on October 20, 1913.

Her rare works include landscapes, adobes, and missions in oil, watercolor, and pastel.
