2 CDVs of young Edith Edna Crane of Arlington, Massachusetts; taken by James W. Turner studio of Boston
Two cartes de visite of young Edith Edna Crane, both taken by the studio of James W. Turner of 47 Hanover Street, Boston, Massachusetts.
From online research, hopefully correct: [corrections and additions welcome!]
Edith Edna Crane was born 13 July 1875 at Arlington, Massachusetts, the daughter of Charles Henry Crane and Adeline Celia (Kimball) Crane, who were born at Dorchester, Massachusetts, and Windsor, Vermont, respectively.
Charles Henry Crane was a farmer, and it appears that he moved his family to Iowa at some point, where they were listed living at Maple, in Monona County, in the 1885 Iowa Census.
Edith, if not all of the family, eventually went back to Massachusetts where she was listed in the 1910 Census of Arlington and was working in insurance. She later moved to Los Angeles, California and lived there for many years. Census records show her as involved in real estate. By the time of the 1940 Census, she was working as a matron in a children's home.
She died at Los Angeles in 1960. Her death record gives the surname Crane, so either she never married or took her maiden name back.
