CDV of Annie Magoon, nee Anna Maria Reed of Skowhegan, Maine

Carte de visite of a woman identified on reverse as "Annie Magoon, Maurice Magoon's mother".  The CDV was produced by Vose & Paul of Skowhegan, Maine.

Annie Magoon was born Anna Maria Reed and married Charles Henry Magoon.

From online research only, hopefully correct: [corrections welcome]

Anna Maria Reed was born 10 September 1850 at Skowhegan, Maine, daughter of Woodbridge Brown Reed and Orinda (Neal) Reed.   

Anna's paternal grandparents were David and Elizabeth T. (Brown) Reed.  Her maternal grandparents were James and Elizabeth (Palmer) Neal.

On 31 December 1884, at Skowhegan, Maine, Anna Maria Reed married Civil War veteran Charles Henry Magoon, son of Horace Benjamin Magoon and Emily (Fogg) Magoon.

The couple had a son, Maurice Bradley Magoon, born 7 May 1886 at Skowhegan.

Charles may have been married before and divorced, though I may have him confused with another Charles H. Magoon.

Charles H. Magoon died at Augusta on 3 June 1894 at the Disabled Volunteer Soldiers home at Togus.  Anna died 10 September 1914 at Skowhegan.
