Vintage Group Photo of Students & Instructors, probably Dexter, Maine
Vintage photograph of students and instructors that is likely from the Dexter, Maine area, as indicated by a sticker on reverse with the name of Mrs. Harry W. Young, 43 School Street, Dexter, Maine.
Harry W. Young was born about 1886 in Maine, the son of Fred M. and Minnie Frances (Butters) Young, both born in Exeter, Maine.
His paternal grandparents were Elias T. and Sarah (Cleveland) Young. His maternal grandparents were Simeon Warren Butters and wife Mary Ann (Titus) Butters.
Harry married June M. Parsons on 25 June 1913. She was born about 1889 at Dexter, Maine,the daughter of Forrest Wilbur Parsons and Rose May (Hodgkins) Parsons.
Her paternal grandparents were Henry C. and Susan T. (Knowlton) Parsons. Her maternal grandparents were Jairus W. and Mary Ann (Brown) Hodgkins.
June died in 1940.
Harry W. Young subsequently married Mabel (Slater) Sims. She was born 30 October 1888 at Dexter, Maine, the daughter of George M. and Emily A. (Martin) Slater.
I'm not sure which Mrs. Harry W. Young affixed the sticker to the reverse of the photograph, but I'm leaning toward June M. (Parsons) Young. It's possible that she or her husband was a student or a teacher in the photograph.
