19th Century Cabinet Photograph of Mary Brewster, possibly nee Mary A. Oliver of New Brunswick and Maine

Late 1800s cabinet photograph of a woman identified on reverse as Mary Brewster.  The photograph was taken by the Loring studio of Eastport, Maine.

It's possible that the Mary Brewster pictured is Mary A. Oliver, who was born about 1837 in New Brunswick, Canada, the daughter of Thomas Oliver and Susan (Surles) Oliver.

Mary married William Brewster, who was also born in New Brunswick about 1834, the son of John and Mary (Thornton) Brewster.  His paternal grandparents were Nathaniel and Ann (Pearson) Brewster.  His maternal grandparents were Titus and Mary B. (Hicks) Thornton.

William and Mary (Oliver) Brewster lived in Eastport and Lubec, Maine, and raised a family of, I believe, seven children.

If you have any corrections, additions or insights regarding the information presented here, or if you have another possibility for the Mary Brewster pictured, please leave a comment or contact Todd House directly.
