Mrs. Campbell Madeira

I recently acquired a painting with a label on the frame that says "from the collection of Mrs. Campbell Madeira.

I went to the Pennsylvania Historical Society and found a Mrs. Campbell Madeira, but she appears only to have used this name in later life (she was born Elizabeth Campbell). Apparently she was married to a gentleman named Percy Madeira, and I assume later they were divorced, because in the social register she appears variously as Mrs. Percy Madeira - Mrs. Elizabeth C. Madeira -- and in the last two listing of her name (1925, 1926) she is Mrs. Campbell Madeira. Her name does not appear in the Social Register after 1926, so I assumed that by 1927 she was no longer living.

I would be interested in learning anything about this lady, or the subject of the painting -- Robert Matheson. I would be particularly interested to know if he was a family relation.
