Cabinet Photograph of Young Woman IDed as Fannie Scott Stevens; Madison, Maine studio
Cabinet photograph of a young woman identified on the reverse as Fannie Scott Stevens. I'm not sure if Scott was her middle name of her maiden name before marrying Mr. Stevens.
The photograph was taken by the Bassett studio with locations at Skowhegan, Maine; and Madison, Maine.
From brief online research, hopefully correct: [readers' input requested]
She may have been the Frances Scott Stevens, born in 1877 at Hartland, Maine, who married Fred Foss Lawrence in 1906. The index to the Maine record notes the marriage took place at Norwich, Connecticut, but it may have been Norridgewock, Maine.
Fred was an attorney, a judge, a law professor and secretary to a Maine governor. I believe Frances died in 1957 and is buried in the Southside Cemetery at Skowhegan, Maine. I didn't find Fred there, but I did find a Fred F. Lawrence, who died in 1969, buried in Evergreen Cemetery at Portland, Maine.
If you have corrections and/or additions to the information above, or feel that Fannie Scott Stevens was another person, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
