May 1907 photograph of Horace S. Stewart of Corinth, Maine; Year before he Drowned at Milo, Maine

May 1907 photograph, presumably a graduation photograph, of a young man identified on reverse as Horace Stewart, a student at East Corinth Academy, judging from initials in the upper right corner. The photograph was taken by the Ramsdell Studio in Bangor, Maine.

Also indicated on the reverse is that Horace drowned on April 26, 1908.

From brief online research, hopefully correct:  [corrections and additions requested]

Horace S. Stewart was born March 28, 1890 in Maine, the son of Willis J. Stewart and Hattie E. (Jillson) Stewart.  The family was living at Corinth, Maine, at the time of enumeration of the 1900 Federal Census.

Horace drowned on April 26, 1908 at Milo, Maine.   His death record with the State of Maine gave his occupation as car repairman, I assume at the railroad yards in the area of Milo and Brownville.

  1. Horace Stewart was my 2nd cousin 3 times removed. His sister Alice's descendants(Alice married Carroll Duran) are still in Corinth. If anyone has more information about this Stewart family, I would be delighted to hear from you:

  2. Thanks for your comment and the additional information about Horace's sister. It would be neat if you connect with some as yet unknown relatives as a result of this post!
