1907 Graduation Photograph of Emily Christina Davis of Rochester, New Hampshire; Bates College at Lewiston, Maine


1907 graduation photograph of E. Christie Davis, graduate with the Class of 1907 of Bates College at Lewiston, Maine.  She was Emily Christina Davis of Rochester, New Hampshire.  The photograph was taken at the Harry Plummer studio at Lewiston, Maine.


From online research, hopefully correct:  [corrections and additions welcome!]

Emily Christina Davis, "Christie" was born 13 September 1883 at Rochester, New Hampshire, the daughter of Charles Adams Davis and Ida Ellen (Junkins) Davis, who were born at Belfast, Maine, and Kittery, Maine, respectively.  Charles Adams Davis operated an ice cream manufacturing business and bakery at Rochester, New Hampshire.

According to information in a 1915 Bates College publication, Emily Christina Davis had taught school at Whitefield, New Hampshire; Springvale, Maine; Sanford, Maine; and Natick, Massachusetts up to 1915.  The 1920 Census of Rochester, New Hampshire, shows that she was living in the household of her parents and teaching at a high school, presumably at Rochester or a nearby town.  Her father's 1921 obituary mentioned that she was then living at Springfield, Massachusetts.

By 1940, she was teaching at Fall River, Massachusetts.  Whether she ever married, I don't know.  If you have corrections and/or additions to the information above, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
