Cabinet Photo Young Woman, Helen Cheney or Chunny; Augusta, Maine studio
Cabinet photograph of a young woman identified on reverse as Hellen Chunny or Hellen Cheenny; could very well be Helen Cheney; photograph taken by Ayer studio, Corner Bridge & Water Streets, Augusta, Maine.
If you have a different idea on her name, please let me know.
I did find a Helen Clark Cheney, the wife of Henry George Cheney, in Randolph, Maine, not far from Augusta. This Helen was born in May 1868 in Vassalboro, Maine, the daughter of William Bicknell Austin and his wife Sarah Joy (Clark) Austin. As for Henry George Cheney, I found two sources online which had him listed alternatively as George Henry Cheney. He was born in Whitefield, Maine, in July 1964, the son of Isaac and Harriet Frances (Yeaton) Cheney.
If you recognize this woman from your family albums or if the name is familiar to you from genealogical or historical research, I would most appreciate hearing from you.
Thanks for stopping by!
