For many years my parents have had an oil painting on thier wall. Lengend handed down with it went as follows: Phebe Cook was a Quaker that came on the mayflower. Of course I believe the mayflower was streching the story. If early quakers did not believe in portraits how can this story be true? The closest I'v come to any relation to her is a ggranddaughter (possibly gg) Phebe Cook Crain. My ggg grandmother. Any help is appreciated. We have no info on the woman in the portrait except her name. Not even sure if its her married name. The portrait is of an older woman with a black bonnett almost covering her face.

researching: Pickering

Joseph F. Pickering is doing a wonderful job of hiding from me. He was, if not Quaker, of Quaker descent. He must have left the faith or been a child of one who did because he served in the Confederate Army. He'd have been born in Virginia about 1845, married a Victoria Orndorff, also from Virginia, in 1869. But they married in Greene County, OH; both of them show up in the 1870 census there but only he does in the 1880 -- despite the fact that they had a son who was born in Missouri in 1876. Anybody know this guy?
