Mercy Brayton, daughter of Francis Brayton b. 1797 and Granddaughter of Borden Brayton b. 1760.
Mercy had a son b. 3/12/1857 RI. Married Benjamin F. Gurney on 10/16/1856 RI at Third Baptist Church, Providence, RI This child cannot be found - no paper trail - no death record. Did she give up this child because possibly Benjamin was not the Father? She and Benjamin did go on to have William b. 1858 and d. 1869, Herbert b. 1861 and d. 1863 and DAUGHTER b. 1863 ???
It appears she married # 2 John Mortimer Skinner in 4/1867, but died 4 months later on 8/23/1867.
What happened to son born 3/12/1857 and what happened to Benjamin F. Gurney?
