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.
