Cabinet Photographs of John Quincy Adams Bolster and wife Mary Anna (Bartlett) Bolster, Maine Natives Living in Melrose, Massachusetts

Companion cabinet photographs of John Quincy Adams Bolster and wife Mary Anna (Bartlett) Bolster of Melrose, Massachusetts. The photographs were taken at the Homer & Co studio of 58 Temple Place, Boston, Massachusetts and the Ritz studio of 58 Temple Place, Boston, Massachusetts.

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

John Quincy Adams Bolster was born 22 November 1825 at Rumford, Maine, son and third child of Aroostook War General Alvan Bolster and Cynthia (Wheeler) Bolster. According to a Bolster family Bible, John married Mary Anna Bartlett of Blue Hill in 1850. They married in Boston, Massachusetts. John worked as a teamster.

The couple lived in Maine and in Charlestown, Massachusetts; by 1900, they had moved to Melrose, Massachusetts.  John died in 1922; Mary Anna died before the enumeration of the 1900 Census, in which John described himself as widowed.
