1917 Photograph of Edith Emma Lewsey of Lyndon, Vermont; graduating from L.G.S., presumably Lyndon Grammar School


1917 photograph of Edith Emma Lewsey on the day of her graduation from L.G.S., at the age of 14.  L.G.S. was presumably Lyndon Grammar School or Lyndonville Grammar School.


From brief online research, hopefully correct - corrections and additions requested:

Edith Emma Lewsey was born November 9, 1902 at Lyndon, Vermont, the daughter of Charles Arthur Lewsey and Harriet Isabel (Densmore) Lewsey, who were born in England and Vermont, respectively.

In 1925 at Chester, Vermont, Edith married Maurice Franklyn Way, son of William C. Way and Elva (Corliss) Way.  Maurice was born July 12, 1898.  Edith and William had, I believe, at least two children.  Edith died in 1985, as the result of a fall down the stairs at her home.  Maurice had predeceased her in 1984.

They're buried in the Lyndon Center Cemetery at Lyndon, Vermont.

1880s CDV & Tintype Album, plus Mementos, of Luella A. (Eugley) Mank Reed of Midcoast Maine



1800s Carte de Visite and tintype album, plus many mementos and trade cards tucked in, that I believe belonged to Luella A. (Eugley) Mank Reed of midcoast Maine.  

Handwriting on the inside front cover, below:

Luella Reed
Maiden name Eugley
Mother Fannie Moody Eugley
Father Josia Eugley
Sister Adelia Eugley Benner
Sister Addie Eugley Oliver
Brother Austin Eugley
Brother Joseph Eugley


The album measures approximately 6" by 5" by 2" and contains cartes de visite, tintypes, calling cards, newspaper clippings and trading cards.

Surnames of people whose photographs appear in the album or who are mentioned:

Luella A. (Eugley) Mank Reed was born in 1864, the daughter of Moses Eugley and Fannie (Moody) Eugley.  Most records I found gave her father's name as Moses Eugley, though the inside front cover of the album, as noted above, gives his name as Josia Eugley.  Hopefully a reader will step in to clarify.

Luella's Find a Grave memorial gives her birth date and place as April 4, 1864 at Nobleboro, Maine.  Luella married twice: 1) Gilbert F. Mank, with whom she had several children; 2) William Reed.  Luella died December 14, 1953 at Thomaston, Maine; she;s buried in the Josiah Moody Cemetery at Nobleboro, Maine, with her first husband, her parents and other relatives.

Luella appears in two photographs, both shown below, a tintype as a 12 year old girl and as an older woman with her two older sisters, Adelia Jane (Eugley) Benner and Adeline Martha (Eugley) Oliver.

1911 Snapshot of Grandma Hansen at Eidsvold; perhaps Kari Olsdatter (Moen) Hanson, Wife of Rasmus Hanson of Eidsvold, Minnesota


1911 snapshot of "Grandma Hansen, Dec. 12, 1911.  Picture taken on her birthday July 27, 1911, at Eidsvold".

Whether Eidsvold is the town in Minnesota or North Dakota, or perhaps Eidsvoll in Norway, I don't know, but I suspect the photograph is from the United States.

As you can see, there's a piece missing along the left side.


From brief online research, hopefully correct - corrections and additions requested:

Among several possibilities, Grandma Hansen may have been Kari Olsdatter (Moen) Hanson, wife of Rasmus Hanson, who were living at at Eidsvold, Minnesota at the time of the 1910 Federal Census.

According to the 1900 Census of Westerheim, Minnesota, Kari (also Carrie, Carey, etc. on record) was born about July 1840 in Norway.   She November 24, 1916 in Lyon County, Minnesota, according to a Minnesota death record.

Kari's Find-a-Grave memorial gives her married name as Hanson and provides two birth dates for her, neither of which is July 27.  The text shows June 29, 1840, but her stone clearly shows June 4, 1840.  These dates may eliminate Kari from consideration as the woman in the photograph.

Kari's husband, Rasmus Hanson, was born at Oppland Fylke, Norway on April 4, 1835.  Information they provided to the enumerator in the 1900 Census indicates that they immigrated to the United States in 1868, about 32 years before and had been married for 32 years.  Whether they knew each other in Norway and married there just before immigrating, or married in the United States, I don't know.

I believe Kari and Rasmus had at least nine children, though I don't know if they all survived to adulthood.

If you feel that Grandma Hansen was another person or if you have corrections and/or additions to the information above, please leave a comment or contact me directly.

Carte de Visite and Tintype Photograph Album with photographs of people from Piscataquis County, Maine - Monson, Maine in particular - and places where some of the people later moved.

(Gerrish) Dinsmore, "Maggie".  Both of the CDVs were taken at Daniel's studio, the D. C. Dinsmore studio at Dover, Maine.




One of the Homer family members shown in the album was James Rudolph Homer, who was born at Monson, Maine, and who moved to Galion, Ohio, where he became mayor.  The CDV and those of his children Charles and Lulia Bell were taken at the B. Cummings studio of Galion, Ohio.


One interesting photograph shows three girls in plaid dressed and a bearded man.  The identification appears to

Nineteenth century photograph album containing cabinet photographs, cartes de visite and tintypes by mostly Ohio studios, with others from Kansas and Pennsylvania.


The predominant surname is Reed from Mt. Vernon, Ohio; Nevada,  Ohio; and Wooster, Ohio.

The surnames mentioned:

CCainMMcClellan [2]
ColemanPPopham [3]
DD ?RReed ]14]
FFrasher [4]SSnyder

An alphabetical list of people identified in the photographs - some are in more than one - appears at the end of this post.  

Below, four children of S. D. Reed, presumably Squire D. Reed:


Below, Mrs. William Frasher [her name is written faintly at the bottom of the album page].  Could she have been Mary C. (Butcher) Frasher, second wife of William Harrison Frasher?

Currie was born at Fredericton, New Brunswick, in 1844 and died while on a mission to India on July 30, 1886.  His death date is written on the carte de visite.  Read more about Rev. Currie's mission to India here.  

Rev. Currie's photograph shares a page with that of young Edith Currie, who I believe was his niece, daughter of Dr. Thomas Turney Currie.
