I have an old photograph of "Mary Banfield" from Vassar College taken by Vail Brothers Photographer, 254 & 256 Main Street, Poughkeepsie, NY, probably from turn of century. I have been informed that Mary Banfield is the daughter of Everett Colby Banfield and Anne Scholfield Fiske and was born in 1865 in Wolfeboro, NH, married Samuel Avery,& had no children. Anne's sister was Helen Maria Fiske who acheived considerable fame as Helen Hunt Jackson, author of "Ramona" and other Indian books. Mary's sisters, Anne and Helen, also graduated from Vassar.
