Behold ye the image of Mercy Hurd.
Back of Portrait. Unsigned. Round presentation in a large gilt molded plaster over a round wooden frame ( 20" x 20" ) .
The wife of Thomas Bingham, William Hunt, and Edmund Rice.
Died in Middlesex County, Massachusetts in 1693. Most of the genealogies mention the first husband. Some researchers disagree on the other husbands. ( see one of the replies to this post)
She has been wrapped up and hidden away for a very long time. As far as I know, she was forgotten in a New England attic. This is the first time to my knowledge that her image has been made public with this posting.
Update: Good news. She has been returned to her family....to a direct descendant in New York who is having her fully restored.
