The online catalog of the Skinner auction house at their auction #2710B on 02 March 2014 is listing as Lot 153 a small profile portrait of Moses Hale Pillsbury who was born in Boscawen, Merrimack County, New Hampshire on 12 June 1800. He married Lucy Mackintire, had six children, and died 13 March 1841 in Boston, Massachusetts.
On the date of my writing this message, a photo of this portrait is still available online at:
but it may be taken offline soon. In the event it is taken offline, I have downloaded it and will be happy to send a copy freely by email to Pillsbury and Mackintire family researchers. Someone in the families ought to have it, which is why I’m keeping a copy and posting about it. It would be a very great shame and injustice were it to be missed by this couple's descendants or relatives.

Please email me directly to my email address rather than respond to me on this website as I may not see that response.
If it were a portrait of a 19th century Pease gentleman in my family line, I’d certainly hope someone would do the same for me. Call it a simple, but appropriate, genealogy good deed.
