Photo of Carrie May (Holt) Ring and husband Walter Glenwood Ring, Cambridge, Maine + 1914 Dexter HS invite

 Wonderful photo of  Walter Glenwood Ring and his wife Carrie May (Holt) Ring out for a drive.  This photo came with another photo of three children, a negative of one child and an invitation to the Dexter High School Commencement of 1914 extended by Carrie May Holt to Mr. Harold Sawyer and lady [The "lady" was Martha Louise Holt, Carrie's older sister.]

Reverse of the photo above with the identification:

Photo of three children, sadly unidentified, in what appears to be a schoolyard:

The negative and the envelope in which it was stored:

Notice that the envelope is addressed to Sister Carrie.  But I don't know if that meant the negative was an image of Sister Carrie or if Carrie's brother or sister addressed the envelope to her, with the negative of another child inside.  Carrie had two brothers and a sister: Vernal Elton Hold, Daniel Packard Holt and Martha Louise Holt.

Invitation to the 1914 Commencement at Dexter High School, Dexter, Maine:

Carrie's card and the envelope carrying the invitation, which was addressed to Mr Harold Sawyer and lady.

Carrie May Holt was born 26 April 1894 in Maine, the daughter of Henry Lincoln Holt and his wife Eunice Thompson (Packard) Holt of Sangerville and Cambridge, Maine, respectively.  Her paternal grandparents were Abner and Martha Ann (Kincaid) Holt.  Her maternal grandparents were John T. and Irene (Cole) Packard.

Carrie May Holt graduated from high school in 1914.  On 18 March 1916, she married Walter Glenwood Ring, who was born 26 October 1892 in Cambridge, Maine, the son of Walter Hiram Ring and his wife Alice May (Mitchell) Ring, both of Cambridge, Maine.

Carrie and Walter had at least one child, a daughter.

I found a Harold L. Sawyer living in Cambridge, Maine, born about 1893.  He married "his lady",  Martha Louise Holt, Carrie's older sister, on 2 February 1914.  Martha was born 24 September 1889.

Harold Leigh Sawyer was born 2 July 1892 in Cambridge, Maine, the son of Samuel and Nancy Ann (Watson, possibly) Sawyer.  His paternal grandparents were Othniel and Betsy Ann (Hilton) Sawyer.  I haven't yet found any information on Nancy Ann Watson's parents, or if Watson was indeed her maiden name.
