CDV of Nettie G. Dolley of Weld, Maine; Student at Farmington State Normal School, Class of 1885

Carte de Visite of a young woman identified on the reverse as Nettie G. Dolley of Weld, Maine.  The photograph was taken at the Starbird studio in Farmington, Maine, where Nettie was a member of the graduating class of 1885 at Farmington State Normal School.

The CDV was found with two others, at least one if not both, also students at Farmington State Normal School in the Class of 1885:

Nettie Gould Dolley (1863-1934) was the daughter of Stephen H. Dolley (1828-1910) and Almira A. (Kittridge) Dolley (1827-1903). Nettie may have taught school but she was working as a dressmaker, at least by 1891. In 1910, she became the second wife of Leander Moody Boothby (1871-1948), but it appears the marriage ended in divorce.

Nettie died in California in 1934.
