Cabinet Photo of Man, surname possibly Washburn, Maine
Cabinet photo that needs further research and a bit of luck. Perhaps you can help me fill in the blanks.
As you can see, there are 3 clues associated with this photo. It was taken by the Fassett & Bassett Studio of Lewiston, Maine. The man is identified as "Mamie's husband". The surname or perhaps, town, of "Washburn" is written above "Mamie's husband".
Researching online, I found several Washburn possibilities in the Androscroggin County area. I also found a Mamie married to a Ralph Washburn, in the 1920 Census for the town of Reed in Aroostook County, Maine and a Mamie who was born a Washburn, the daughter of George and Lula in Presque Isle, Maine.
My hope is that someone will see this photo and recognize this man from family photographs or genealogy research and contact me.
Thanks for stopping by!
