1891 Memorial Card of Lorana E. Gilpatrick, likely Danforth, Maine

Memorial card published on the occasion of the death of Lorana E. Gilpatrick, who died 25 April 1891 at the age of 39 years and 7 months.  Nothing on reverse.

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

Lorana Esther Kelley was born September 1852 at or near Selden, Maine, or Weston, Maine, the daughter of Jeremiah and Sarah Parker (Ellis) Kelley, who were born in Massachusetts and Brighton, Maine, respectively.

In 1869 at Weston, Maine, Lorana married Albert Howard Gilpatrick, son of William and Emeline (Cleaves) Gilpatrick. Albert was born about 1848 at Weston, Maine.   Albert and Lorana made their home at Danforth, Maine, where they had five children before Lorana died in childbirth after delivering twins.
