[Woman formerly identified as a sister of Charles H. Cushing.]
Half length portrait of a woman, approximately age 40 or 50, wearing jewelry (earrings and brooch) and a shawl. Twentieth
century note accompanying item appears to be incorrect in identifiying sitter as Eliza (later Elice), sister of Charles Cushing.
Genealogical records indicate he had no sister by this name. His mother was Eliza Constantia (Watson) Cushing (1791-1872),
who would have been about 60 when this portrait was taken, so it may not be she. Charles Cushing also had a daughter Eliza,
and it is she who died as "Elise", in 1958.
