c1900 Photograph of Two Young Girls, Perhaps Daughters of Frank and Bertha Heath of Ellsworth, Maine

c1900 photograph of two young girls with the name of Mrs. Frank Heath, Mill Street, Ellsworth Falls, Ellsworth, Maine, on the reverse.

It's intriguing to note that a Mrs. Bertha Belle (Brown) Heath, wife of Frank Heath, lived at Ellswortth, Maine, and had two daughters, Julia Brown Heath and Doris S. Heath.  Perhaps they are the girls pictured above.

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

Frank Linwood Heath was born October 26, 1982, at Ellsworth, Maine (according to his marriage record) the son of Francis Heath and Susan (Maddocks or Maddox) Heath.  On June 19, 1897 at Ellsworth, Maine, Frank Linwood Heath married Bertha Belle Brown, who was born November 17,  1873 at Ellsworth, Maine, daughter of Henry Mayo Brown and Letitia A. (Garland) Brown.

See other posts that deal with the diaries of the Moore and Garland families of Ellsworth, Maine.

Frank and Bertha lived at Ellsworth, Maine, where Frank worked as an insurance agent and participated in civic affairs.  They had at least two children:
  1. Julia Brown Heath, born December 6, 1897 at Ellsworth, Maine
  2. Doris S. Heath, born November 29, 1898 at Ellsworth, Maine
As noted above, Julia and Doris may be the girls in the photograph at top.

If you have corrections and/or additions to the information above, or an alternate identity for the two girls, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
