Memorial Card for Laura Ellen (Clarry) Sweet, who died in Maine in 1888

Memorial card published on the occasion of the death of Mrs. Laura E. Sweet on 1 March 1888.   Nothing on reverse.

 "Mrs. Laura E. Sweet, Died March 1, 1888. Aged 34 Years, and 10 months".

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

Laura E. (Clarry/Clary) Sweet was born Laura Ellen Clarry on 28 April 1853, at Holden, Maine, the daughter of Edward Carpenter Clarry and Caroline H. (Perry ?) Clarry.

On 25 December 1876 at Eddington, Maine, Laura Ellen Clarry married Bromley C. Sweet, son of Campbell and Margaret Caroline (Comins) Sweet.  Bromley was born 29 January 1834.   Bromley and Laura had four children together, I believe. After Laura's death in 1888, Bromley married Elzena R. Moore and had more children. He died in 1912.
