1890s Photograph, Presumably High School Graduation Photograph, of Arleen Hackett at Middleborough, Massachusetts
c1890s photograph, presumably a graduation photograph, of Arleen Hackett, graduating from Middleborough High School at Middleborough, Massachusetts. Judging from what is written on the reverse, she gave the Class Prophecy.
From brief online research, hopefully correct: [corrections and additions requested]
Arleen may have been the Bessie Arleen Hackett who was born February 12, 1876 at Wareham, Massachusetts, the daughter of Peleg Sumner Hackett and Betsey Clark (Coombs) Hackett. Arleen married Major Clifford Mackay Husted, son of Edwin Merton Husted and Flora (Mackay) Husted.
This Arleen, who died in 1964, is buried with her parents in the Purchade Cemetery at Middleborough, Massachusetts.
Incidentally, another post features a letter of Bessie Arleen Hackett's older sister Eldora Purdenet Hackett, who was born August 6, 1861 at Lakeville, Massachusetts.
If you have corrections and/or information to share, or feel that Arleen Hackett is a different person from that described above, please leave a comment for the benefit of your fellow researchers.
