Photograph of C. F. Dudley of Limerick, Maine

Cabinet photograph of a man identified on reverse as what I believe is C. F. Dudley, though I'm not positive about the middle initial.  

I found a Charles Franklin Dudley living at Limerick, Maine and wonder if he might be the man in the photograph.

From online research, hopefully correct:

Charles Franklin Dudley was born 14 August 1874 at Milton Mills, New Hampshire, son of James Daniel Franklin Dudley and his first wife, Annie (Jenness) Dudley.

His paternal grandparents were Charles and Phoebe (Coleman) Dudley.  His maternal grandparents were Alfred and Bertha (Dexter) Jenness.

On 1 July 1894 at North Parsonfield, Maine, Charles married Jessie M. Richards, daughter of Lewis and Mary (Durgin) Richards.

They made their home at Limerick, Maine; I found two children for them, a son and a daughter.  Charles worked as a tinsmith and plumber.

I found the record of a marriage between a Charles F. Dudley and Florence E. Edgerley in 1918.  On Charles' death record from Chepachet, Rhode Island, he was shown as widowed, with his deceased wife's name as Jessie Richards.  

Perhaps he and Florence divorced?  Perhaps he and Jessie divorced and got back together again later in life after Florence died?  Perhaps it was a different Charles F. Dudley who married Florence?

If you have any corrections to the information above, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
