James Peale, Mrs. John McCluney, ca. 1795, watercolor on ivory, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Museum purchase through the Catherine Walden Myer Fund, 1950.12.3
It is not clear whether this woman is Elizabeth Purviance, who was married to Major John McCluney of Pennsylvania in 1804, or if she is Isabella Shearer of Virginia, who married a John McCluney in 1779. With luck, further research will eventually reveal her identity.
