Crowdsourcing an Early Mass Jurist

We do our part.  From a WBUR report, incorporated into a post on NPR:
Among what it calls its "extensive collection of historic paintings and photographs," the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court has an oil painting of a justice who has remained unidentified, and it's launched a public campaign in the hopes that someone knows who he is.
In a statement, the court said the justice "may have sat on the bench between 1780 and 1820."
