Cabinet Photo of Ann Lawrence, taken by Winterport, Maine studio
Cabinet photo of a woman identified on reverse as Ann Lawrence. The photograph was taken by F. C. Nealey studio of Winterport and, perhaps, Bangor, Maine.
Searching online, I found an Ann Lawrence, born about 1832 in Maine, the wife of Isaac Lawrence, in the 1860-1880 Censuses of Etna, Maine, which is close to Winterport, Maine. In the 1850 Census of Etna, Maine, there's an Ann Lawrence who was the daughter of Eleazer and Sally Lawrence, also born about 1832. These two Anns could be different people, or perhaps Ann Lawrence married Isaac Lawrence.
And perhaps the Ann Lawrence in the photograph is neither of these. I found another Ann Lawrence living in Bucksport, Maine, which is also close to Winterport, especially by vessel.
If you recognize this woman from your family albums or from genealogical research, please leave a comment in the comments box or contact me directly.
Thanks for stopping by!
