Mary E. Wonson Merrill, Gloucester, 1820-1910

Classification: Query
Seeking information on Mary E. Wonson Merrill, (1820- 1910h, wife of Octavius A. Merrill, lighthouse keeper at 10 Pound Island when Winslow Homer stayed there in the summer of 1880. Homer's stay was supposed to have been arranged through Elizabeth S. French Preston, (1808- 1882, of New Ipswich, NH), paternal aunt of Homer's sister-in-law, Martha (Mattie) French Homer, as Mrs. Preston was related to Mrs. Merrill...I am trying to find out how these two ladies were related, and have not been able to do so...Other surnames in Elizabeth French Preston's lineage, (besides French) include Kidder, Stickney, and Richardson...Any help would be greatly appreciated!
