Hattie Mae Small & Eugene A. Drinkwater, Maine


Wedding announcement for Hattie Mae Small & Eugene A. Drinkwater, married in Tenants Harbor, Maine, on 7 May 1913.

From what I have been able to find:

Eugene A. Drinkwater was the son of Daniel Drinkwater and Susan Dennett, of Webster, Maine. Eugene was born about 1870, likely in Webster.

It appears he was married twice, first on 21 Mar 1895 to Statira A. Holbrook (born about 1878 and also from Webster), with whom he had Leslie; Richard; Charlotte; and Raymond. So far I haven't been able to find out what happened to Statira or "Statie".

Then, on 7 May 1913, Eugene married Hattie Mae Small. I haven't found much information on Hattie; I don't know if Small was her maiden name or from a previous marriage. In the Maine Marriages Online Database entry for her marriage to Eugene, Hattie's residence is listed as Vassalboro, Maine. They may have had their wedding at Tenants Harbor because it's a scenic coastal location. Hattie then appears on the 1920 Census in Webster with Eugene, their son Edwin N. Drinkwater born about 191 and Eugene's son Raymond from his first marriage.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any information on this family. I hope you enjoy the image of this marriage announcement!
