1898 Wedding Announcement of Seth Leon Rowe and Ethel Augusta Ward, Bangor, Maine

Mr. and Mrs. Sylvanus H. Ward announce the marriage of their daughter Ethel Augusta to Mr. Seth Leon Rowe, Wednesday, October the twenty-sixth, Eighteen hundred and ninety-eight, Bangor, Maine.  At Home, after November the twenty-fifth, 74 Jefferson Street.

From what I have been able to determine online, Seth Leon Rowe was born in September 1872 in Maine, the son of James Wilton Rowe and his wife Abbie Melissa (Howe) Rowe of Eddington, Maine.  

Edith Augusta Ward was born in March 1873 in Maine, (the 1900 the Census states New Brunswick), the daughter of Sylvanus H. and Celia A. Ward of Enfield, Maine, and later the Bangor, Maine area.  

By 1910, Edith was living with her parents in Hampden, Maine and was listed as divorced.  In 1912, she married James H. Haynes, Jr., and they were still married in the 1930 Census, my last contact with them.  Edith's 80 year old mother Celia was living with them; presumably Celia's husband Sylvanus had died by then.

Hopefully you've found this heirloom meaningful.  If you have any information to share on the Rowe or Ward or Haynes families of Penobscot County, Maine, I would love to hear from you.

Thanks for stopping by!
