Mrs. Hiscott ~ Mystery Woman

Mrs. Hiscott
This digital photo is a scan of the original held in the collection of the Niagara Historical Society Museum and is identified only as ''Mrs. Hiscott''. The question is which Mrs. Hiscott is she?

  • Mary Simpson (1790-1852), 1st wife of Richard
  • Martha Reed (1803-1860's), 2nd wife of Richard
  • Elizabeth Ann Coleman (1804-1878), 3rd wife of Richard
  • Hannah Maria Read (1828-1912), wife of James
  • Elizabeth Clement (1830-1897), wife of Thomas
  • Catherine Ann Depotie (1838-1928), wife of Edward
I can try researching the style of dress and bonnet that she is wearing and try to date this however these are all 19th century women so narrowing it down to one may be impossible. Unless of course someone recognizes her and can let me know who she is.
