1887 Palermo, Maine Teaching Certificate for Maude Caswell

1887 State of Maine Certificate No. 18 for Palermo, Maine, November 21, 1887 certifying Miss Maude Caswell as competent to teach in the subjects of Reading, Spelling, English Grammar, Georgraphy, History, Arithmetic, Bookkeeping and Physiology. 

The certificate was signed by A. B. Glidden, Supervisor, who may have been Ansel B. Glidden (1857-1904).

From online research, hopefully correct - corrections requested:

Maude Nettie Caswell (1866-1948) was born in 1867 in Maine, perhaps in Union, the daughter of Lendall Caswell and his wife Ellen (Gower) Caswell.  

In 1892, Maude married George D. Rowe (1866-1934), the son of Charles S. Rowe and his wife Huldah (Stearns) Rowe, both of whom were born in Smithfield, Maine.  

George D. Rowe was a physician in Augusta, Maine.  He was associated with the Maine State Asylum, now known as Riverview Psychiatric Center.  I found George and Maude living in Providence, Rhode Island in the 1910-1930 Censuses.  No one else was listed as living with them.  I haven't yet found them in the 1900 Census, so am not sure if they ever had any children.

If you have any corrections and/or information to share on any of the people mentioned above, please leave a comment for the benefit of other researchers.
