Photograph of Michael Brogan, Canada and Calais, Maine

Photograph of a young man identified on reverse as Michael Brogan of Calais, Maine; the photograph was taken by Piper of Manchester, New Hampshire.

From online research, hopefully correct:

Michael Alexander Brogan was born 25 January 1877 in New Brunswick, Canada, the son of Daniel and Catherine (Finnigan) Brogan.  I believe his paternal grandparents were Alexander and Ann Agnes (Dolan) Brogan.  His maternal grandparents were Michael and Mary (Gillan) Finnigan.

Michael came to live in the US about 1895.  In 1912, he married Elizabeth Theresa Conboy , who was born about 1877 in Maine, the daughter of John and Mary (possibly Craugh).  The couple resided in Calais, Maine.  In the 1930 Census, Michael gave his occupation as restaurant proprietor.Note: See the comment below in which a reader gives Michael's year of death as 1948.
