1880s CDVs of Siblings Millie F. Pervear and Harry Thomas Pervear of Sedgwick, Maine

Cartes de Visite of siblings Millie F. Pervear and Harry Thomas Pervear of Sedgwick, Maine.  They were the children of Thomas Jefferson Pervear and Ellen Frances (Cummings) Pervear.

Reverse of the CDV of Millie F. Pervear.

Millie was born in 1873 at Sedgwick, Maine, and married Archie Babson Kane of Brooklin, Maine, at Sedgwick, on November 30, 1893.  Sadly, Millie died young, in 1896 of Typhoid Fever; she left a son Myron Francis Kane, born May 2, 1894 at Brooklin, Maine.

Millie is buried in the Sedgwick Rural Cemetery at Sedgwick, Maine. Her husband Archie remarried and move to the Midwest.  He died in 1940 and is buried in Michigan.

Interestingly, I have an inscription done by the siblings' paternal grandfather Philip Pervear, age the age of 105, in the autograph album of Frances E. (Milliken) Leverton of Surry, Maine, and Mount Desert Island Maine.

Below, CDV of Harry Thomas Pervear.  He was born in 1881 at Sedgwick, Maine, and married Nova Scotia native Stella M. Hoffman at Portland, Maine, on June 25, 1902.  They divorced, after having had a least one child, Harry Thomas Pervear, Jr.  Harry Sr. married New Brunswick native Priscilla (Johnston) Douglass on June 17, 1908 at Lynn, Massachusetts.  Harry may have died in 1961, but I can't verify that.  Many online sources have his date of death confused with that of his son, Harry Thomas Pervear, Jr.
