1892 Photograph of a Young Man IDed on the reverse as A. E. Colby of Lewiston, Maine

Photograph, dated January 22, 1892, of a young man identified on the reverse as A. E. Colby of Lewiston, Maine.  The photograph was taken by the studio of Curtis & Ross of Lewiston.

 He may have been Arthur Edward Colby (1873-1936), born, according to his WWI Draft Registration card, on 14 April 1873. He was the son of Edward J. Colby and his second wife Anna.

By the time of enumeration of the  1900 Federal Census, Arthur was living in Waterbury, Connecticut, with wife Alice and two boarders with the surname Coe. Arthur and Alice would have at least one child, son Arthur Calvin Colby.

Arthur Edward Colby is buried in Old Pine Grove Cemetery in Waterbury, Connecticut.  I didn't see a listing for Alice with him, but she may be buried there as well, or perhaps she moved away or married.  Their son Arthur is buried in Florida.
