1899 Photo at Eastern State Normal School of Carrie B. Calligan, b. Grand Lake Stream, Maine

Photograph of Carrie B. Calligan, who was a member of the Class of 1899 at Eastern States Normal School in Castine, Maine.

From online research, hopefully correct:

Carrie B. Calligan was born in March of 1878 at Grand Lake Stream, Maine, the daughter of Thomas Calligan, who was born in Calais, Maine on 15 June 1840, and his wife Elizabeth "Lizzie" F. (Calligan) Calligan, who was born 20 December, 1843 in Machiasport, Maine.  

Carrie's paternal grandparents were William Calligan or Callaghan, born in Eastport, Maine, and his wife Sarah J. Campbell, born in Saint John, New Brunswick.  

Her maternal grandparents were Hollis Calligan, who was born in Machias, Maine, and Rachel (Robinson) Calligan, who was born in Machiasport, Maine.

On 24 June 1903, Carrie B. Calligan married George B. McDonald, who was born in January of 1872 at Grand Lake Stream, Maine, the son of Augustine McDonald, born at St. Peter Lake, Prince Edward Island, and Harriet Dinsmore, born in Talmadge, Maine. 

In the 1920 and 1930 Censuses, the couple was living in Calais, Maine, and had at least one child, a daughter, living with them.  I haven't yet found them in the 1910 or 1911Census of the US or Canada.

If you have any corrections, additions or insights regarding the information provided above, please leave a comment or contact me directly.  I'd like to know more about George A. McDonald's parents.
