Painting of Memorial of Maria (Bishop) Seymour, Died September 3, 1838 at age 37; Widow of Aaron Seymour; New Hartford, New York

Painting of a memorial, with weeping willow motif, of Maria Seymour, who died on September 3, 1838 at the age of 37.  She was the daughter of Nathan and Lucy Bishop and [second] wife of Aaron Seymour.

The painting, which appears to be on kraft-type paper, measures a bit over 12" by 10" and is too large for my scanner, as you can see from the image above.

I believe Maria is the Maria in this Find a Grave memorial, which misreads her death year as 1835 and thus shows a miscalculated birth year.  Maria and Aaron, son of Aaron Seymour and Anna (Phelps) Seymour of West Hartford, Connecticut, are buried in the Green Lawn Cemetery at New Hartford, New York, with at least one of their children and with Maria's parents, Nathan Bishop and Lucy (Seward) Bishop, and other Bishop relatives.

If you have information on the Bishop and Seymour families of New York and Connecticut, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
