c. 1900 Photograph of Alice Haskell. The imprint is very faint against the gray background, but I believe I can make out "Bangor, Maine".
Alice Weaver Haskell was born 12 April 1883 at Deer Isle, Maine, the daughter of Jasper Webster Haskell and his wife Martha Flavilla (Haskell) Haskell. Her paternal grandparents were Aaron Stickney Haskell and his wife Margaret H. McDaniel Atwood Haskell. I don't have the names of Margaret's parents, and I'm not sure if Margaret's maiden name was McDaniel or Atwood.
On 27 December 1904, Alice married Irving Charles Gray, who was born 6 July 1880 at Deer Isle, Maine, the son of Charles Gray and his wife Olive Jane (Pickering) Gray. Alice and Irving had a son, Everett Randall Gray, born in late 1905.
Sadly, I believe that Alice died in late 1905 or 1906; I found both death years for her. If late 1905 or early 1906, possibly she died as a result of childbirth.
Her husband married a second time, to Roseana A. Pentecost, who was born 3 Oct 1888 in Nova Scotia, Canada.
I found conflicting birth dates, names spellings and death dates for Irving online. However, according to the Maine Marriages online database, he was Irving C. Gray. According to his World War II draft registration card, his date of birth was 27 July 1880. As for his date of death, I found 1949 and 1956. It's possible that he is sometimes confused with a Charles Erving Gray.
If you have any corrections, additions or insights regarding the information presented above, or if you know of another candidate for the Alice Haskell in the photograph, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
