Images of all of the pages appear at the end of this post.
The booklet was published by Rev. Salem D. Towne of Boston, Massachusetts, who may be the person shown on an end paper.

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

According to their official marriage record, William, born in Winslow, Maine, was the son of Albion H. McClintock and Sarah (Matthews) McClintock.  Susie, a native of Troy, Maine, was the daughter of John Ward and Sarah E. (Childs) Ward.  [Be sure to scroll down on the record to see the reverse.]

William had previously been married to Lou Belle Pearson, a Fairfield native, who died in 1903.

Note: a reader noticed a marriage certificate with photographs of William and Lou at an antique shop in Florida and kindly forwarded this photograph for the benefit of other researchers - many thanks!

William and second wife Sarah made their home in Fairfield, Maine:
  • 1910 - William's occupation was laundry owner
  • 1920 - William's occupation was insurance agent
  • 1930 - William's occupation: "none"
  • 1940 - William's occupation - line left blank

If you have corrections or information to share, please leave a comment for the benefit of other researchers.
