1895 Graduation Photograph of Ethel Louise Parker - East Boston High School at Boston, Massachusetts

1895 graduation photograph of Ethel Louise Parker, at her graduation from East Boston High School at Boston, Massachusetts.  Ethel Louise Parker Wellington (1875-1963)

The photograph was taken at the Charles W. Hearn studio at either 392 Boylston Street, Boston, Massachusetts, or Old Orchard Beach, Maine.

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

Ethel Louise Parker was born 16 July 1875 at Boston, Massachusetts, the daughter of Charles and Ella (Emery) Parker.  Ella died 20 March 1878.  Sadly, Ethel would lose her only brother, Walter Irving Parker, about two years later.

Charles married again, in 1882, to Clara Morin of Canada.  They would have a child, Helen Eugenia Parker, born 9 August 1887.

The 1895 Annual Report of the School Committee of Boston lists Ethel L. Parker as a student at East Boston High School.  Listed with her is Blanche Lillian Libbey, whose graduation photograph is featured in another post.

On 14 June 1900 at Worcester, Massachusetts, Ethel Louise Parker married Henry Baxter Wellington, son of Frederick and Charlotte (Easton) Wellington.  Henry was born 15 February 1875 at Cambridge, Massachusetts.

The new couple settled at Worcester, Massachusetts, and had at least two children, a daughter and a son.
