This is a reproduction of a portrait of Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford housed in his home in Woburn, MA. The original was painted by Gainsborough. Thompson is a 4th cousin and grew up with a several times great uncle, Loammi Baldwin. I have toured Thompson's home several times. If you are in MA, please make the time for this tour. It is awesome and full of information for genealogists and history buffs. Enjoy! Carol Baldwin (Baldwin-3428)

I wanted to share this family photo of Benjamin Thompson with the community. Location: Photo of reproduction taken at Count Rumford home in Woburn, Middlesex, MA. Date: unknown.
