1906 Photograph of Edward Young & Wife Sarah Jane Young; possibly Edward F. Young & 2nd Wife Sarah Jane (Rice) Young of Lamoine, Maine

1906 photograph of Edward Young and wife Sarah Jane Young; no studio imprint.  They may have been Edward F. Young and second wife Sarah Jane (Rice) Young of Lamoine, Maine.

The photograph measures approximately 5-1/2" by 4" and is set in a mat measuring approximately 9" by 6".

If you have family photographs of an Edward Young and wife Sarah Jane, please leave a comment or contact me directly.

"Loving Christmas Greeting to All, 1906".  Someone added in another hand: "Edward Young & wife Sarah Jane Young".

From brief online research and assuming I have the correct Edward & Sarah - corrections, additions, alternative identities requested:

Edward F. Young was born April 18, 1850 at Trenton, Maine, son of Simeon Young and Elizabeth Jane Smith.  Edward first married Amanda E. Hopkins, who died on September 18, 1874; their daughter Eva was born about that time; perhaps her mother died in childbirth.  Eva married Nelson Walker in 1893.

In 1877 Edward married Sarah Jane Rice, daughter of Joseph M. Rice and Annie Margaret Coombs (Merrithew) Rice.  Sarah Jane was born, according to her gravestone, on July 30, 1853.  She died April 27, 1924.  Edward and Sarah Jane had four children, I believe.

Edward died in 1939 and is buried in the Forest Hill Cemetery at Lamoine Corner in Lamoine, Maine, with both of his wives and with two of his children with Sarah Jane.

If you have corrections and/or additions to the information above, or if you think that Edward and Sarah are another couple, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
