CDV of Mrs. Charles Maryott; by a Providence, Rhode Island studio; presumably Juliet Crowell (Morse) Maryott

Carte de Visite of a woman identified on the reverse as Mrs. Charles Maryott.  The photograph was taken by the H. Q. Morton studio of Providence, Rhode Island.  She was presumably Juliet Crowell (Morse) Maryott, wife of Rev. Charles Alpheus Maryott.

From brief online research, hopefully correct and assuming I have the correct Mrs. Charles Maryott [corrections and additions requested]

Juliet Crowell Morse was born in Rhode Island in 1852, the daughter of George Morse and Almira Nickerson (Crowell) Morse.  On October 13, 1875 at Lincoln, Rhode Island, or Smithfield, Rhode Island, Juliet married Rev. Charles Alpheus Maryott, son of Ichabod Burman Maryott and Almira (Miner) Maryott.

According to an obituary in a Brown University publication of 1907, excerpted below, Charles Alpheus Maryott was born on January 1, 1843 at North Smithfield, Rhode Island.

[Please excuse the OCR errors]


Rev. Charles Alpheus Maryott, a few years ago one of the most widely known Baptist ministers in Providence, state secretary of the Rhode Island State Baptist convention and president and secretary of the conference of Baptist ministers of Providence and vicinity, died at Biloxi, Miss., January 17, 1907, at the age of 64 years and 16 days. He was the son of Rev. I. B. Maryott and Almira Miner and was born at North Stonington, Conn., January 1, 1843. He prepared for college at the Connecticut Literary and Scientific Institution, and in 1866 entered Brown University, graduating in 1870, with the degree of A. B., and receiving in 1873 that of A. M in course.  Upon leaving college he spent a year at Crozer Theological Seminary, after which he was ordained to the Baptist ministry. His pastorates were as follows: Lonsdale, R. I., 1871-73; Quidnesset Baptist church. North Kingston, R. I., 1883-88; Mount Pleasant Baptist church, Providence, 1888-95; First Baptist church, Wickford, R. I., 1897-1902. In 1902 Mr Maryott retired from the ministry on account of ill health, and went to live with his son, Harold B. Maryott, at Chicago, Ill. 

On October 13, 1875, he married Miss Juliet Covvell Morse of Central Falls, R. I., who 
survives him with two children, Harold Burnham Maryott, Brown, 1900, and Miss Ethel Louise Maryott. 

Rev. Charles Alpheus Maryott died in 1907, and Juliet in 1939.  They're buried with family members in the Elm Grove cemetery at North Kingstown, Rhode Island.
