c1900 Photograph of Hazel Keyes; Belfast, Maine studio

Photograph of a woman identified on reverse as Hazel Keyes.  The photograph was taken by a studio in Belfast, Maine.

I didn't find a Hazel Keyes in Belfast, but I did find a few possibilities in Maine, who may have been vacationing, visiting relatives or attending a nearby school.

One possibility is Hazel Gladys Keyes, who was born about January 1893 at Old Town, Maine, daughter of Elmer L. and Elizabeth [possibly Isabella Elizabeth] (Neal) Keyes.  

Her paternal grandparents were Elmer and Sarah Esther Keyes.  Her maternal grandparents were John and Margaret (Cochran) Neal.

On 11 January 1913, Hazel married Herbert Ellison Gray, son of Herbert Oliver Gray and his first wife Sarah Emeline (Robbins) Gray.

Sadly, Hazel died not long after her marriage, on 2 January 1919.

If you have any corrections to the information above or if you feel that the Hazel Keyes in the photograph is a different woman from the one described, please leave a comment or contact me directly.

Thanks for stopping by!
