Photograph of Hattie Mae (Hortshorn) Moore of Swanville, Maine, and Bangor, Maine; by the Star Studio of Bangor, Maine

Photograph by the Star Studio of Bangor, Maine, of Hattie Mae (Hartshorn) Moore of Swanville, Maine, and Bangor, Maine.

The photograph, which itself measures 3-3/4" by 2-3/4", is enclosed in a jacket.  Hattie's identification is written just above the pane containing her photograph, as shown below.

See another post that features photographs of a younger Hattie Mae and her brother Zenas Downs Hartshorn and a post that features a photograph of their grandfather Zenas Downs of Swanville, Maine.

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

Hattie Mae Hartshorn was born at Swanville, Maine, on July 23, 1883, the daughter Charles Andrew Hartshorn and Martha Eva (Downs) Hartshorn - from her birth record in Maine Vital Records 1670-1921.  Another record in that same database shows that Hattie married Andrew P. Moore at Swanville, Maine, on March 21, 1906.  

According to a record in the Maine, Faylene Hutton Cemetery Collection, 1780-1990, Andrew Park Moore was born at Frankfort, Maine, on November 11, 1879, son of Elias Moore and Martha (True) Moore.

At the time of their marriage, Hattie was a teacher and Andrew, the son of Elias B. Moore and  a farmer.  At some point in the 1920s, Andrew and Hattie moved to Bangor, where they apparently lived for the rest of their lives.   I didn't find records of any children born to them.

Andrew died in 1952 and Hattie in 1920.  They're buried in the Greenlawn Cemetery at Swanville, Maine.  If you have corrections and/or additions to the information above, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
