Thank you so much for all of your work on my family pieces.

Hi Jennifer - thank you...
Hi Jennifer - thank you so much for all of your work on my family pieces. I have found a note regarding the large portrait of a woman, and her first name is ***** ***** . . I am unable to find further information. Do you do genealogy at all? If so - would you research Euphen (and I think Barr is the last name) and any relationship to Mayo or Lansing? I think that is the connection. Thank you again!

I can certainly try. Is it possible to upload a photo of the note? I find clues that way, sometimes.

I can. It is attached. It is actually a list of items to be distributed to individual family members and I was the recipient of the needlepointed chair and the secretary. The portrait hung behind the little needlepointed chair so I am positive it is the one we are discussing. If there is any relationship between Euphen and the Mayo/Reynolds/Bainbridge etc family then we have it! Thank you, ***** ***** this helps identify our mystery woman!

Thanks!

I've found a Euphen Barr, but I don't think it's the same one. I'll keep checking.

Euphan Wilson Cooper was married to ***** ***** Bainbridge. Their children were Mary Elizabeth Bainbridge and Juliet Blanton Bainbridge. Does that sound correct?
