1905 Graduation Photograph of Ella Grace Hartman of Providence, Rhode Island; from Technical High School


1905 graduation photograph of Ella Grace Hartman, a student at Technical High School at Providence, Rhode Island.  Ella would enroll at Brown University in 1909.


The photograph is 4" by 3"; mounted, the it measures 10" by 7".  It was found with 15 other photographs of graduates of the Class of 1905 at Technical High School.  Most of the photographs, like this one, were taken at the studio of Edgar K. Horton at Providence, Rhode Island.

A list of the 16 graduates in the collection of photographs appears at the end of this post.

From brief online research, hopefully correct - corrections and additions requested:

Ella Grace Hartman was born April 20, 1885 in Pennsylvania, the daughter of  Rev. John Henry Hartman and his first wife, whose name I haven't yet discovered.  On July 3, 1888 at Providence, Rhode Island, Rev. John Henry Hartman, then living at Trenton, New Jersey, married Harriet (Cornell Jones), daughter of George Cornell and wife Mary J.

Ella was teaching at the time of enumeration of the 1910 Census of Providence, Rhode Island.  I believe she is the Ella Grace Hartman who married James Kendall Brigham on October 14, 1916.  James was born April 4, 1889 at Fall River, Massachusetts, the son of James W. Brigham and Mary Elizabeth (Kendall) Brigham.  According to Census information, they were living at Boston, Massachusetts, in 1920; and Montclair, New Jersey, in 1930.  According to the  1940 Census of Providence, Rhode Island, Ella Grace was divorced and working as an executive housekeeper at a hotel.

If you have corrections and/or additions to the information above, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
