Photograph, possibly Graduation Photograph, of George Melcher, by the Studio of Miss Taney of Bangor, Maine

Photograph, perhaps a graduation photograph, of a young man identified on the reverse as George Melcher.  The photograph was taken by the studio of Miss Taney of Bangor, Maine.

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

George may have been George Sabine Melcher, born February 17, 1891 at Brookline, Massachusetts, the son of William King Melcher, Jr.,  and Mary Addie (Doane) Melcher.  George became a member of the Merchant Marine and lived at various times in Massachusetts, Maine, Louisiana and Maryland, presumably in response to the needs of his career.   I didn't find a marriage record for him.

George died in 1947.  He, his sister Mary Louise Melcher and their parents are buried in Locust Grove Cemetery at Hampden, Maine.

If you have corrections and/or additions to the information above, or if you believe that George was another George Melcher, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
