c1910 photograph of two women identified on the reverse as Rose Stone and Jane Jones.
Because the photograph was found with a collection of photographs, many of which were related to the Milo, Maine, area, these women may have been teachers Rose Ethel (Doble) Stone and Jane Jones of Milo, Maine.
Rose married Charles W. Stone, Jr., in 1907. The photograph may have been taken after that date, or it may have been taken before Rose was married, with the identification provided at a later date.
See other posts that feature Jane Amanda Jones's relatives:
- a photograph of Jane Jones' sister Martha (Jones) Prescott, wife of Edward P. Prescott of Milo, Maine. She's in a photograph of 10 women with only 3 of them identified. The post also shows a photograph of George Jones, presumably the father of Jane and Martha, and a photograph of Mildred Billings, which was inscribed to Jane Jones
- Real Photo Postcard of Rachel Alice Prescott, daughter of Martha (Jones) Prescott)
- Photograph of a child, presumably the child of Martha (Jones) Prescott
- Photograph of Aunt Ethel Brown of Farmington, Maine - presumably Ethel L. or Ethelyn (Jones) Brown, sister of George A. Jones, father of Jane Amanda Jones - pictured below
Rose Ethel (Doble) Stone, hopefully the woman in the photograph, was born March 10, 1886 at Milo, Maine, the daughter of Benjamin Willis Doble and Lois Belle (Danforth) Doble. On June 11, 1907 at Milo, Maine, Rose married Charles Wesley Stone, Jr., son of Charles Wesley Stone and Frances Augusta (Cross) Stone. Charles, Jr., was born born February 11, 1880 and had graduated from the University of Maine with a degree in chemistry in 1903. At the time of their marriage, Rose was teaching and Charles was working as a chemist. Rose lived a long life and died in Virginia in 1980. Charles had predeceased her in Virginia in 1940.
Jane Amanda Jones, hopefully the other woman in the photograph, was born at Bucksport, Maine, on November 26, 1875, the daughter of railway contractors George A. Jones and Rachel (Lawrence) Jones. Interestingly, two other photographs were found in the collection containing the photograph above. One shows a man identified on the reverse as George Jones, who may have been Martha's father George A. Jones, who was born at Pugwash, Nova Scotia, on March 16, 1853.
Another photograph shows Mildred Billings who wrote on the reverse that her photograph was intended for Miss Jones, perhaps for Jane or her sister Martha. Both Jane and her sister Martha taught school, so either would have been a plausible "Miss Jones".
I don't believe Jane ever married. She died in 1959 and is buried in the Everegreen Cemetery at Milo, Maine, with family members.
