1920 Photograph of Priests, with Wording on Reverse: Dec. 15, 1920, William Nemer"
Update: A reader has left extensive research in the comments section, on the Nemer family of Waterville, Maine
1920 group photograph of five priests or priests and laymen, with wording on the reverse: Dec. 15, 1920, William Nemer".
There's no clue as to locale. The photograph was purchased in Maine, and there just happened to have been a William Nemer living at Waterville, Maine, in 1920s and 1930s, but there were other men by that name living throughout the United States.
Just in case, this photograph shows the William Nemer from Waterville, Maine:
William Nemer came to the United States from Syria about 1913 and settled at Waterville, Maine, where he worked as a finisher in a woolen mill. William married Isabel Elhilu at Waterville, Maine, in 1924. Isabel had come to the United States from Syria in 1921. By 1930, William and Isabel had two children.
If you have a theory about the identity of William Nemer and the other men, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
