1906 Graduation Photograph of Grace Mae McKeen from Woburn, Massachusetts High School


1906 Graduation Photograph of Grace Mae McKeen from Woburn High School, at Woburn, Massachusetts, taken by the Purdy studio of Boston, Massachusetts.



From online research, hopefully correct: [corrections welcome]

Grace Mae McKeen was born 21 May 1887 at Swanville, Maine, the daughter of Isaac Edwin McKeen and Flora Emma (Morrill) McKeen, who were themselves both born at Swanville.

Grace's paternal grandparents were Ephraim and Sarah Jane (Nickerson) McKeen.  Her maternal grandparents were John Sawyer Morrill and Hannah (Bachelder) Morrill.

Grace, her brothers and widowed father were living at Woburn, Massachusetts, at the time of the enumeration of the 1900 and 1910 Censuses.  Her mother had died at Woburn on 6 October 1899.

On 5 February 1913 at Swanville, Maine, Grace married Rufus James Mayo, son of Joseph Eldorus Mayo and Cora Eva (Hassell) Mayo.  Rufus was born 2 May 1886 at Belfast, Maine.

Rufus died in 1938.  Grace and her daughter were still at Belfast, Maine, at the time of the 1940 Census, but at some point, perhaps due to the daughter's marriage, they made their way to Pennsylvania.  Grace died there in 1977.
