Mary appears about 16-20 years old in photo and is beautiful! We believe she was born in Vermont, and married Louis Bernier in VT. Later they lived in the general Holyoke, Springfield, Northampton area. If you have any further info on this family or corrections, please email Debra here.

The photo is trimmed on all edges, usually to fit into the very tight CDV photo albums, as many were. It does not affect her beautiful image in any way.  A wonderful and historical New England area Fusher family piece, taken during the Civil War era. It was found in Hampshire County MA.
