Cabinet photograph of toddler William T. Graham taken by the Lamson studio of Portland, Maine.
Two of the photographs mention Ruth, daughter of William T. Graham, so before they ended up in an antique shop, they must have been in the possession of a relative or friend of Ruth Graham.
From online research, hopefully correct:
William T. Graham was born 30 December 1879 and died 21 September 1927. I believe he was born in Manchester, New Hampshire, the son of William Graham of Scotland and Mary Rich (Cartland) Graham.
On 24 April 1907, William T. Graham married Lucy Ellen Cartland, who was his second cousin. They shared great grandparents Charles and Miriam (Robinson) Cartland.
Lucy Ellen Cartland was born 11 December 1879 in Brunswick, Maine, the daughter of Charles and Frances Ellen (Tracy) Cartland. Her paternal grandparents were Cyrus and Phoebe Rogers (Jones) Cartland. Her maternal grandparents were John Orr Tracy and his wife Octavia (Philbrook) Tracy.
William T. and Lucy Ellen Graham had at least two children, one of them being the Ruth mentioned on the reverse of two of the photographs in the collection, this one and that of Mary Rich (Cartland) Graham.
