Photograph of Millard Fillmore Sargent (1852-1910); taken by a Lebanon, New Hampshire, studio

Photograph of a middle aged man identified on the reverse as Millard F. Sargent; someone, perhaps his widow, wrote his birth and death dates.  The photograph was taken by the Lewis studio of Lebanon, New Hampshire.

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

Millard Fillmore Sargent was born at Canaan, New Hampshire, on 18 July 1852, the son of Aaron and Mary J. (Stevens) Sargent.  Aaron Sargent died in battle at Petersburg, Virginia, on 16 June 1864.  He left, I think, four children, one of whom, Lucinda C.(Sargent) Aldrich, wife of Edwin D. Aldrich, would die in 1874.

By the time he was 18, Millard was working and living on the farm of Lewis and Mary Colby, as noted on the 1870 Census of Enfield, New Hampshire.  By the time of the 1880 Census of Windsor, Vermont, Millard was working as a grocer.

On 26 July 1887 at Lebanon, New Hampshire, Millard Fillmore Sargent married Maria M. Stevens, daughter of Charles Cutler [or Cutter] or Cutler [or Cutter] Stevens and Martha (Farwell) Stevens.

Millard and Maria settled at Lebanon, New Hampshire and raised a son.  Millard worked as a restaurant keeper.  As noted on the photograph, Millard died on 21 May 1910.  Maria lived until 1944.
