Cabinet Photos of Louzon A. Damon & wife Harriet Elizabeth (Pierce) Damon, New Bedford, Massachusetts
Cabinet photographs of Louzon A. Damon, above, and wife Harriet Elizabeth (Pierce) Damon, below. Both are taken by a studio in New Bedford, Massachusetts.
From online research, hopefully correct:
Louzon A. Damon was born in February of 1868, in Massachusetts, the son of Charles H. and Phoebe N. (Douglas) Damon of Massachusetts, at various times in Bristol and Plymouth Counties. His paternal grandparents were Charles and Abigail (Hammond) Damon. I haven't yet found information on the parents of his mother, Phoebe N. Douglas, or if Douglas was indeed her maiden name.
On 26 May 1889, Louzon A. Damon married Harriet Elizabeth Pierce.
Harriet Elizabeth (Pierce) Damon was born in May of 1869, the daughter of Eli Wilson Pierce and wife Anna (Slocum) Pierce. Her paternal grandparents were Eli W. Pierce and Fidelia (Ryder) Pierce. Her maternal grandparents were William and Maria Slocum.
In the 1900 Census, Louzon and Harriet were living in East Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where Louzon was working as a machinist. Sometime between the enumerations of the 1900 and 1910 Censuses, Louzon Damon died. In the 1910 Census, Harriet Damon was a widow, living in Danvers, Massachusetts with her sister Fannie Isabel and husband Stephen Shaw Haswell.
In the 1920 Census, Harriet was still living in Danvers, Massachusetts, but with sister Ada Ward. In the 1930 Census, she was living as a lodger in Salem, Massachusetts.
I didn't find any children for Louzon and Harriet Damon, at least none who were alive by 1910.
These photographs were found with a photograph, shown in an earlier post, of Stephen Shaw Haswell, mentioned above, who was married to Harriet's older sister Fannie Isabel (Pierce) Haswell.
