1923 Photograph of Arthur and Ruth (Wiggin) Harrison and daughter Cora of Gorham, Maine

Photograph in a presentation folder of a family identified as Arthur and Ruth Harrison and daughter Cora, Ruth and daughter Cora, taken in the summer of 1923.

I tweaked the image of the back of the folder a bit to make the handwriting stand out.

From online research, hopefully correct: [corrections welcome]

Cora Louise Harrison was born 13 May 1922 at Gorham, Maine, daughter of Arthur Albert Harrison and Ruth C. (Wiggin) Harrison, who were born at Haverhill, Massachusetts, and Windham, Maine, respectively.

Cora's paternal grandparents were Joseph Waterman Harrison born at Edmunds or Dennysville, Maine, and Louisa (Nason) Harrison, born at Gorham, Maine.

Cora's maternal grandparents were Arthur H. Wiggin, born at Hodgdon, Maine, and Cora E. (Morse) Wiggin, born at Auburn, Maine.

Cora had a younger sister Margaret who was not yet born when the photograph was taken.  I believe Margaret married Albert R. Judson of Westborough, Massachusetts.

Cora lived at Portland, Maine.  In her early fifties she married Russell Harding Dyer, son of Harry Leroy Dyer and Mildred L. (Libby) Dyer.  Russell was born 20 September 1920 at Portland, Maine.  He was a widower.
