Calling Card of Eva B. Hurd, presumably the Eva Bell Hurd (1869-1952) of Stetson, Maine Who Married Garnett T. Fenderson
Calling card of Eva B. Hurd. Because this card came with a collection of Maine calling cards, most of them from Franklin County or the Levant, Maine, area, I believe this card belonged to Eva Bell Hurd of Stetson, Maine.
From brief online research, hopefully correct - corrections and additions requested:
Eva Bell Hurd was born at Stetson, Maine, daughter of Samuel Hurd and Lizzie Ann (Cole) Hurd. The month on Eva's birth record looks like the abbreviation for January, but her stone is clearly etched July.
The 1900 and 1910 Censuses of Stetson, Maine, show that Eva was working as a dressmaker and living with her widowed mother and sisters.
On May 1, 1915 at Stetson, Maine, Eva married farmer Garnett T. Fenderson, son of Irad F. Fenderson and Sarah Elizabeth (Tibbetts) Fenderson. Garnett was born October 31, 1870 at Stetson, Maine.
Garnett died in 1936 and Eva in 1952; they're buried in the Coboro Cemetery at Stetson, Maine, with Garnett's parents and brother.
