c1898 Reward of Merit: Student Sadie D. Child; Teacher Fred Weeks, presumably Peru, Maine

c1898 oversized Reward of Merit presented to Sadie D. Child from teacher Fred Weeks. The item was purchased in Maine.

Searching online, I found a Sadie D. Child, or Sarah D. Child (1887-1920), in the Peru, Maine, area, born 1887. She was the daughter of Homer & Martha Jane (Ripley) Child. She married Carson Leslie Beedy of Mexico, Maine, in 1907.

There was also a Fred Albert Weeks in the Peru, Maine, area, born in 1874, son of Alsanson Mellen Weeks and Vesta Ellen (Soule) Weeks. In the 1900 Census, this particular Fred was not then working as a teacher.

If you have information to share on Sadie D. Child and/or Fred Weeks, please leave a comment for the benefit of other researchers.
