Cabinet Photo of W. B. Libby, taken by Lewiston, Maine studio; possibly William Beede Libby, born 1873
Cabinet photo of a man identified on reverse as W. B. Libby. The photograph was taken by Hammond Photo of Lewiston, Maine.
From online research, hopefully correct:
I think this is William Beede Libby, who was born 14 June 1873 in Auburn, Maine, the son of Azariah Libby, born in Danville, Maine, in 1836, and his wife Ruth Ellen (Parker) Libby, who was born in 1838 in Durham, Maine.
William Beede Libby's paternal grandparents were Theophilus and Sally (Wood) Libby of Maine. His maternal grandparents were Washington and Elizabeth (Haskins) Parker of Maine.
On 5 December 1898, William Beede Libby married Harriet E. Rolfe of Monmouth, Maine. She was born 26 Mar 1881 in Maine, the daughter of William M. Rolfe and his second wife Judith Elma (Luce) Rolfe. Harriet's paternal grandparents were Henry Lane Rolfe and his wife Betsy (Nye) Rolfe. Her maternal grandparents were Hiram and Judith (Furbush) Luce.
William B. Libby and his wife Harriet "Hattie" (Rolfe) Libby raised a family in Auburn, Maine.
If you have any corrections, additions or insights regarding the information presented above, especially if you have reason to believe that the W. B. Libby in the photograph is not William Beede Libby, please leave a comment in the comments box or contact me directly.
