Cabinet Photo of Stephen Shaw Haswell, born 1851, Fairhaven, Massachusetts

Cabinet photograph taken of Stephen Shaw Haswell, born 1851 in Fairhaven, Massachusetts, by the studio of Nash and Hazelton of Salem, Massachusetts.

From online research, hopefully correct:

Stephen Shaw Haswell was born 3 May 1851 in Fairhaven, Massachusetts, the son of Stephen S. and Abigail (Kelley) Haswell.  His paternal grandparents were Ephraim and Mary (Cahoone) Haswell.  His maternal grandparents were Amos and Lydia (Braley) Kelley.

On 3 May 1885, Stephen Shaw Haswell married Fannie Isabel Pierce.  She was born about 1863 in Massachusetts, the daughter of Eli Wilson Pierce and his wife Annie (Slocum) Pierce of Bristol County, Massachusetts.  Her paternal grandparents were Eli Wilson Pierce and wife Fidelia (Ryder) Pierce.   Her maternal grandparents were William and Maria Slocum.

After their marriage, they moved to the North Shore of Massachusetts.  I found at least one son for them, Percy Damon Haswell, born 3 October 1899.   

Interestingly, I have posted about two other cabinet photos with a connection to Fannie Isabel (Pierce) Haswell.  They show Louzon A. Damon and his wife Harriet Elizabeth (Pierce) Damon, Fannie's younger sister.
