Photograph of Emma Hunter (Porter) Gilman (1871-1960) of Franklin County, Maine

Photograph of a woman identified on the reverse as Emma Porter Gilman; no studio imprint.

Emma and Fred, natives of Strong, Maine, and West Farmington, Maine respectively, married on 7 September 1895 at Strong. At the time they were both living in Madison, Maine, where Fred was a merchant and Emma a milliner.

They lived for a while in Brooklyn, New York, with Emma's parents and later returned to Farmington, Maine, where Fred worked as a rural mail carrier and later as a chief of police.
