Eliza Stone attended Princeton University, she is from Chicago (or the greater Chicagland area).
FWIW, Mariel Zagunis was born in Oregon.

And yes indeed we are a nation of immigrants. Thankfully.

And now I am leaving to go to my fencing club for the evening.

In high school I dated a girl from fencing.
Red headed Carmen.
Perfect.
