CDV of a Woman IDed as Louise Tenney; by the M. G. Trask studio of Bangor, Maine

Carte de Visite of a woman identified on the reverse as Louise Tenney.  Photograph by the M. G. Trask studio of Bangor, Maine.
Louise Tenney may have been Louise Wass (Merritt) Tenney (1846-1921) of Addison, Maine, and Columbia, Maine; wife of Augustus Henry Tenney (1841-1911).

This Louise was the daughter of Moses Worcester Merritt and Martha Ann (Wass) Merritt of Addison, Maine.  

It wasn't unusual for someone in a town in Washington County, Maine, to have a photograph taken in Bangor, as Bangor would then have been a "destination" service center, as it still is.

If you feel that Louisa Tenney was someone else or if you have information to share on the Tenney and Merritt families of western Washington County, Maine, please leave a comment for the benefit of other researchers.


  1. I am a descendant of the Moses Worchester Merritt and Martha Ann Wass family

    1. Do you have any photographs that you can compare? Would be wonderful to figure out which Louise Tenney she was.
