Cabinet Photograph of a Young Man IDed as Edd Fairbanks; H. S. Pratt Studio of Phillips, Maine

Cabinet photograph by the A. S. Pratt studio of Phillips, Maine, of a young man identified on the reverse as Edd Fairbanks.

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

He may have been Edward Everett Fairbanks, born November 14, 1867, son of George Fairbanks and Nancy E. (Pratt) Fairbanks.

I found records for two marriages for an Edward E. Fairbanks at Phillips, Maine:
  1. Blanche E. Farnham on November 14, 1899; they divorced.
  2. Dora E. (Heath) Jones on December 12, 1916.  Dora had previously been married to Jacob S. Jones.  
This Edward's date and birth, parents and first marriage are recorded in Genealogy of the Fairbanks family in America, 1633-1897 on page 728.

I believe he died in 1941, though I haven't yet found a record.

If you have corrections and/or additions to the information above, or an alternate theory for the identity of Edd Fairbanks, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
