Graduation Photograph of George Stewart York from Yarmouth, Maine HS

Graduation Photograph of a young man identified on reverse as George Stewart York, from Y. H. S., which I assume is Yarmouth High School at Yarmouth, Maine.  No photographer's mark.

From online research, hopefully correct: [corrections welcome]

George Stewart York was born 25 December 1880 at Pownal, Maine, the son of William F. and Abbie C. (Loring) York, born at Pownal, Maine, and North Yarmouth, Maine, respectively.

On 2 August 1909 at Yarmouth, Maine, George married Eva Mae (Colson) Winslow.  She was the widow of Forrest H. Winslow and had a daughter Zoie [or Zoe?] from that marriage.

Eva was born about 1881 at Belfast, Maine, daughter of Charles W. and Eva M. (Bates) Colson.  Eva M. (Bates) Colson was born at Frankfort, Maine.

In the 1910 Census, George, Eva and Zoie were living at Yarmouth, Maine.  George was working as a chemist at a pulp mill.

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

See a related post with a photograph of Professor Herbert Moore, who also graduated from Yarmouth High School, Yarmouth, Maine,  in 1898, or was an educator there at that time.
