Two c1909 Photographs of Ethel E. McNab, 1909 Graduate of Bridgton Academy at Bridgton, Maine

Two photographs of a young woman identified as Ethel E. McNab.  One of them is further identified with "B.A. '09".  Ethel graduated from Bridgton Academy at Bridgton, Maine, in 1909, as noted in the General Catalogue of Bridgton Academy 1879-1916.

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

Ethel E. McNab was born about December 20, 1891 at Bartlett, New Hampshire, the daughter of Charles E. McNab and Clara (Quint) McNab, who were born at Pugwash, Nova Scotia, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, respectively.
On September 2, 1919 at Lancaster, New Hampshire, Ethel, who was then teaching school, married William Leonard McCarten, son of William H. McCarten and Janette (Gray) McCarten.  William graduated in the Class of 1914 from New Hampshire College.  At the time of his marriage, he was working as a clerk but he was later involved in the lumber industry.  I noticed a discussion online that the McCarten name had originally been McCartney.

Ethel and William had at least one child, a son.  William Leonard McCarten died in 1963, and Ethel in August 1981.

If you have corrections and/or additions to the information above, please leave a comment for the benefit of other researchers.
