Brayton Family Genealogy Forum
Can someone help me solve this mystery? I am looking for Mercy Brayton, daughter of Francis Brayton b. 3/20/1797 in Portsmouth or Tiverton, RI or Fall River, MA and Agnes Lake. Francis is the son of Borden Brayton b. 1760.
It seems Mercy Brayton had a son, on 3/12/1857 Providence, RI.However,it appears that she married Benjamin F. Gurney on 10/16/1856 RI. Trying to find what happened to this child. He just seems to disappear without any paper trail - no death records. Did she give him up because Benjamin was not the Father?. Maybe someone would have some suggestion how I should proceed to try and find the missing son born in 1857.
