Very good week for my Photo Identification Project. Four individuals were identified and four others I have names for but I can’t confirm them.
For four of the photos I was able to determine who they were, and I uploaded the images to the memory section of the individual profiles on Family Search.
- John S. Loud (1856-1917) – L1BX-2QF – Rochester, NH; 19 Dec 1903.
- Frank Hodgens (1863-1917) – 9XS7-GXW – 1889.
- Sadie Marion Griffiths (1901-1971), Family Search ID: LZXB-M22; Newmarket, NH; 1912.
- Preston A. Peckham (1882-1910) – LR83-H1J – Lynn, Mass.
Uncertain Photo Identification
I was not able to determine four of the individuals for certain. They are:
“Leroy Franklin Radley” Rockland, ME – Christmas 1914 – Pillsbury Studio, Rockland. This is clearly Leroy Franklin Radley, born 16 Oct 1913 in Rockland, Knox County, Maine, the son of Franklin L. and Agnes Radley. I, however, have been unable to find Leroy Radley in Family Search or in an Ancestry Tree. If you are a family member of Leroy and can place him into a family tree, please contact me.
“Caroline Parker” – Photo by London Photo. My guess about the photo is that it appears, to me, to be from the 1930s. I can’t determine if the person is in her 20s or her 50s. As such, I suspect the person was probably born between 1890 and 1930.
There was a Gladys Caroline Parker, born c. 1890, who lived in Portland.
There was a Caroline Parker, born c. 1894, who lived in Gardiner, Maine.
There was a Caroline Parker, born in 1909 who lived in Biddeford, Maine.
There was a Caroline Parker, born in 1910 who lived in Bangor, Maine.
There was a Caroline Parker, born c. 1922, who lived in Wilton, Maine.
I am unable to determine which of the many Caroline Parkers this photo is an image of.
“Ralph Adolph Johnson” – Photo by Marion, Lowell, Mass. There was a Ralph Adolph John, who married Almira Louise Johnson on 7 Sep 1916 in South Portland, Cumberland, Maine. At the time of the Marriage, Ralph lived in Lowell, Mass; he was 23 years old and born in Scarboro, Maine. I am confident this is Ralph Adolph Johnson (1893-1972). There is no entry for this person in Family Search. I’ll see he is added to the Scarborough Historical Society photo collection.
“Susie E. Love” – Photo by Flagg & Plummer, Lewiston, ME. I am unable to determine her identification. A Susan Evelyn (Farrington) Rowe, married Woodbury Grover Love in 1919. This photo appears to be a bit earlier than 1919, but it is possibly her.
If you are related to any of these families and can help precisely identify them, I’d love to hear from you
Two more on Family Search
I feel confident I’ve found two more on Family Search. (Their photos are above.)
“Sadie Marian Griffith – 12 years.” Photo by W. J. Thibault, Newmarket, NH. This photo appears to be from the 1920s. It identifies the subject as 12 years old.
There was a Sadie Marion Griffiths born 6 April 1901 in Durham, Strafford, New Hampshire. Durham is about four miles from Newmarket. There do not appear to be any other Sadie’s in the area. As such, I’m confident this is Sadie Marion Griffiths (1901-1971), Family Search ID: LZXB-M22; child of Edward Bartholomew and Mary Effie (Furber) Griffiths.
“Preston Peckham” – Photo by Geo W. Ames, Lynn, Mass.
A review of the various Preston Peckhams on Family Search yielded a Preston A. Peckham, born in September 1882 to John P and Nellie M Peckham and living in Lynn, Mass. On Family Search the person is LR83-H1J.
I’d love to learn if you are related to any of these individuals.
