Three Cabinet Photographs of Carson Family members from Mount Vernon, Maine, and Grand Meadow, Minnesota


Three cabinet photographs of the Carson family: Hannah K. (Brown) Carson and her son William Ellsworth Carson, both of Mount Vernon, Maine, and Hannah's granddaughter Leona Amanda Carson of Grand Meadow, Minnesota.

Two of the photographs were taken at Lynn, Massachusetts, where two of Hannah's daughters were living.  



The images above are front and reverse of a cabinet photograph of Hannah K. (Brown) Carson of Mount Vernon, Maine.  The photograph was taken by the studio of F. E. Taggard of 333 Union Street, Lynn, Massachusetts.

The images below are front and reverse of a cabinet photograph of William Ellsworth Carson, Hannah's youngest child.  The photograph was taken by the R. A. Reed Studio o 66 Market Street, Lynn, Massachusetts.




The images below are front and reverse of a photograph of Leona Amanda Carson, daughter of Hannah's oldest son, James Franklin Carson.  The photograph was taken by the Criswell studio of Grand Meadow, Minnesota.




From online research, hopefully correct: [corrections and additions welcome!]

Hannah K. (Brown) Carson was born 14 January 1818 at Mount Vernon, Maine, the daughter of Nathan Brown, Jr., and Mary (Kimball) Brown.  On 4 November 1841 at Mount Vernon, Maine, Hannah married James Carson, son of James and Mary Polly (Greeley) Carson.  James Jr. was born at Mount Vernon, Maine, on 14 March 1811.
