Photograph of Young Woman Identified as Grace Crehore; Salem, Massachusetts studio
Photograph of a young woman identified on reverse as Grace Crehore. The photograph was taken by Taylor & Preston of Salem, Massachusetts.
Researching online, I found a Grace S. Crehore in the 1920 Census of Salem, Massachusetts. She indicated she was born about 1881 in New York, that she was widowed and that she operated a lodging house. In the 1930 Census of Salem, there's a Grace S. Crehore, who was born about 1868 in New York, also widowed, and it appeared she had a lodging business as well.
I'm guessing they are the same person, but the age difference is a worry.
I couldn't find any earlier listings for Grace Crehore, which might have helped determine the first name of her husband.
If you have come across a Grace Crehore from Salem, Massachusetts in your family research, please leave a comment in the comments box or contact me directly. I notice that the Crehore name was a familiar one in colonial New England.
Thanks for stopping by!
