Cabinet Photo of Woman by Haynes studio of Bangor, Maine; inscribed to Mr. and Mrs. Waldo Cowing

Photograph of an unidentified young woman, taken by the studio of W. H. Haynes of Bangor, Maine.  The photograph is inscribed to Mr. and Mrs. Waldo Cowing.

Perhaps a reader who has researched the Cowing family will recognize this woman and leave a comment with her identity.

From online research, hopefully correct: [corrections welcome]

Waldo Daniel Cowing was born 23 September 1862 at Dedham, Maine, son of Daniel and Rachel Ann (Blaisdell) Cowing, born at Lisbon, Maine, and Orland, Maine respectively.

His paternal grandparents were Thomas and Martha Patty (Witherell) Cowing.  His maternal grandparents were Dudley Daniel Blaisdell and Eunice Wasson (Condon) Blaisdell.

In 1886 at Dedham, Maine, Waldo married Nellie H. Billington, daughter of Edward R. and Sophia Lucretia (Burrill) Billington of Dedham, Maine.  Nellie was born 15 July 1865 at Dedham, Maine.

Nellie's paternal grandparents were Daniel S. and Lovina Hinckley (Eddy) Billington.  Her maternal grandparents were William Gordon Burrill and Elsie Buck (Blood) Burrill.

Waldo and Nellie farmed at Dedham, Maine, and raised a family of, I think, eight children.
