Photograph of three women and two men; taken by the Frank H. Trow studio of Hudson, Massachusetts.
The name "Lucy D. Barnard" appears on the reverse.
Two issues of Knox County, Maine, newspapers mentioned a Lucy D. Barnard, including one which gave her address as Hudson, Massachusetts:
- Rockland Gazette of January 9, 1879: Lucy helped put on the Ladies Library Benefit
- Courier Gazette of October 8, 1895: Lucy D. Barnard of Hudson, Massachusetts, was visiting Mrs. J. B. Porter
She was presumably Lucy Doane Barnard (1835-1919), daughter of John D. Barnard and Lucinda M. (Buxton) Barnard. Unless a coincidence, Lucy was presumably related to the prominent Barnard family of Hudson, Massachusetts.
If you recognize any of the people in the photograph, from family heirloom photos or from research, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
