Photograph of Young Man Charles M. Coy, b. 1893, Monson, Maine

Photograph of a young man identified on reverse as Charles Coy, brother of Leona Richards.  The photograph was taken by the Spurling studio of Dover, Maine.

From online research, hopefully correct:

Charles M. Coy was born 22 June 1893 at Monson, Maine, the son of Forrest H. Coy and wife Martha "Mattie" Bennett (Drake) Coy.  His paternal grandparents were Charles Melvin Coy and Elmira S. (Bean) Coy.  His maternal grandparents were Elhanan Gay Drake and Delana Snow (Strout) Drake.

On 27 June 1928, Charles M. Coy married Marion E. Chandler.  She was born 24 January 1903 in what is now Dover-Foxcroft, Maine, the daughter of Franklin E. Chandler and Mabel E. (Brown) Chandler.  Her paternal grandparents were James and Sarah Josephine (Hurd) Chandler.  Her maternal grandparents were Lysander C. Brown and Annie Rose (Haskell) Brown.

Marion was a teacher in Dexter, Maine, as I've heard from a reader, one of her former students.

I'm not sure if the couple had any children or not.  In the 1930 Census, they're in Dexter, Maine, and have no children living with them.

See an obituaries for Charles M. Coy and Marion E. (Chandler) Coy.  Note that Charles' sister Leona (Coy) Richards, the sibling mentioned on the reverse of his photograph, survived him.
