Athol M. Kane, pictured in Photo of Students & Teacher Mr. Shorey, Surry, Maine High School

Assuming I have the placement figured out correctly, this is a photo of Athol M. Kane when a student at Surry High School in Surry, Maine. 

The entire class photo [which I discussed in an earlier post 
Early 20th Century Photograph of Surry, Maine High School students & teacher Mr. Shorey  ]  is below.

Here is the reverse of the photograph so that you can draw your own conclusions about the placement.  If you feel that the girl shown above is not Athol M. Kane [written as Ethel in the identifications on reverse of photo], please scroll down to the comments section or contact me directly.  Please do the same if the genealogy below has errors, or if you have further information or insights.

From online research, which is hopefully correct: 

Athol M. Kane was born on 8 July 1897 in Surry, Maine, the daughter of Walter and, I think, Susan E. Trundy.  Walter was the son of Joseph and Mary Ann (Carter) Kane, but I could find no information on Susan; perhaps Trundy is not her maiden name, or I have the wrong person entirely.

Athol M. Kane and Howe Duane Higgins were married on 22 December 1917 and apparently lived on Mount Desert Island most, if not all, of their married life.  I couldn't find any children for them, though they may have had some.

Howe Duane Higgins was born 25 February 1894 in Bar Harbor, Maine, the son of Fenelon B. and Addie L. (Mayo) Higgins.  His paternal grandparents were Sylvanus and Mehitable (possibly Salsbury) Higgins.  His maternal grandparents were Lorenzo and Martha Adeline (Emery) Mayo.

I've thoroughly enjoyed my visit with Hancock County, Maine, genealogy.   Again, if you have any corrections, comments or insights, please use the comments box below or contact me directly. 

Thanks for stopping by!
