Late 1800s/early 1900s Photograph of an Older Man; by the Hall studio of Belfast, Maine; possibly related to Curtis & Howard Families
Photograph of an older man, presumably taken in the late 1800s, by the Hall studio of Belfast, Maine.
Handwriting on the reverse: From Aunt Sarah to her niece Faustina Howard.
Faustina may have been Faustina B. (Curtis) Howard (1867-1956) of Searsport, Maine, daughter of George Washington Curtis (1839-1925) and Mary E. (Chase) Curtis (1840-1905).
This Faustina did have a paternal Aunt Sarah, by marriage to her father's brother Levi Lincoln Curtis (1834-1909), and the man in this photograph looks very much like the Curtis brothers and relatives.
If you recognize the man in the photograph, with the clues given, please leave his identification in a comment for the benefit of other researchers.
