George Edward Perkins and wife Harriet E. (Aylward) Perkins of Perry, Maine
Photograph of couple identified on the reverse as Hattie (Aylward) Perkins and George Perkins. The identification is in the handwriting of amateur historian Virginia (Golding) Pottle, now deceased, of Perry, Maine.
See another post that features the 19th century photograph of a house that Virginia (Golding) Pottle felt was the Perkins House on the Shore Road at Perry, Maine, with one of the people appearing to be George Edward Perkins or his father James Perkins.
George Edward Perkins was born April 13, 1855 at Perry, Maine, the son of James Perkins and his second wife, Mehitable (Pottle) Perkins. Harriet E. (Aylward) Perkins, "Hattie", was born at Pembroke, Maine, or Perry, Maine, on February 8, 1867, the daughter of Lowell C. Aylward and Harriet E. (Leach) Aylward.
Read more about the military service of Lowell C. Aylward here.
George and Hattie married in March of 1886 and settled at Perry, Maine. I didn't find a record of any children for them. Hattie died in 1905 at Calais, Maine, shortly after her 38th birthday. George was still alive at the time of the 1930 Census of Perry, Maine.
