Photograph of Carolyn Susan Foye of Dover, New Hampshire

Cabinet photograph of young woman identified on the reverse as Carolyn S. Foye.  The photograph was taken by the Hardy studio of 523 Washington Street, Boston, Massachusetts.

The photograph was found with another, of Albertine Henrietta Foss, which has an inscription from Albertinella of Dover, New Hampshire, 1893 to Carolyn.  Albertinella was Albertine Henrietta Foss.  Carolyn and Albertine were schoolmates from Dover, New Hampshire.  

See another blog post for the photograph and family history of Albertine Henrietta Foss.

From online research, hopefully correct: [corrections welcome]

Carolyn Susan Foye was born about 1872 in New Hampshire.  Although I saw one reference online where her birthplace was listed as South Berwick, Maine, nearly all other references show New Hampshire as her birthplace.  

Her parents were William P. and Lucy (Hurd) Foye.  William P. Foye was born in either New Hampshire or Maine; Census records indicate both.  Lucy was born in New Hampshire.

Carolyn's paternal grandparents were Thomas and Susan E. (Horne) Foye.  Her maternal grandparents were Joshua and Lucy (Roberts) Hurd.

Carolyn, "Carrie", gave the address to the undergraduates at her graduation from Dover High School in 1890.  Albertine H. Foss was also in this class.  Since the photograph of Albertine inscribed to Carolyn has a date of 1893, and both photographs were taken by the same studio, Hardy, at 523 Washington Street, I wonder if the two young women attended a teachers college together in the Boston area.

On 2 October 1897 at Dover, New Hampshire, Carolyn married Emery Moses Flanders, son of Lorenzo and Hannah (Drew) Flanders.  Emery was born 7 October 1869 at Bridgewater, New Hampshire.

Emery and Carolyn were enumerated in the 1910 Census of Boston, Massachusetts, where Emery was working as a superintendent in a leather factory, and Carolyn was teaching elocution.

By the time of the 1920 Census, the couple was living at Manchester, New Hampshire, where Emery was working in the leather industry, and Carolyn was at home.  I don't know if the couple had any children.

Carolyn had died by the time of the 1930 Census.
