Cabinet Photograph of George F. McKay of Brewer, Maine; Photo by the Weston Studio of Bangor, Maine

Cabinet photograph of a young man identified on the reverse as George F. McKay, son of George W. McKay.  The photograph was taken at the Weston studio, 2 Smith Block, Bangor, Maine.

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

George Fellows McKay was born February 18, 1873, the son of George W. McKay and Amelia E. (Nash) McKay.  On June 18, 1899, George Fellows McKay married Lillian May Peasley, daughter of Charles Alfred Peasley.  I can't read Lillian's mother's name from the marriage record.

Lillian was born about 1881 at St. Paul, Minnesota, where her father, a native of Woodstock, New Brunswick, had apparently moved his family as a result of his work on the railroad.

George Fellows McKay worked as a barber with his father and then as a typewriter salesman.  He died in 1929 and is buried with his parents in Oak Hill Cemetery at Brewer, Maine.  Lillian married widower Eugene B. Gordon in 1930.

If you have corrections and/or additions to the information above, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
