Photograph of Olive Cushman Young and Sophia Baker; by a Milbridge, Maine studio
Photograph of two women identified on the reverse as Olive Cushman Young and Sophia Baker. The photograph was taken by the G. H. Smyth studio of Milbridge, Maine.
From online research, hopefully correct: [corrections and additions welcome!]
Sophia K. Baker was born about November 1879, the daughter of Colin and Elizabeth (Crowley) Baker of Steuben, Maine. She married Melbourne Owen Baltzer on 28 August 1912. She died at Brockton, Massachusetts, in 1931.
I found an Olive Cushman, about the same age as Sophia, in Steuben, Maine, the daughter of Silas K. and Elizabeth D. (Smith) Cushman, but she married Francis L. Wood of Bar Harbor. I didn't find an Olive Cushman Young. It's possible that the name Young came from a subsequent marriage.
Milbridge, Maine, which abuts Steuben, is a logical place for Steuben folks to have their photograph taken.
