4 Cabinet Photos of the Cartland & Graham Families of Maine

Four cabinet photographs of the Cartland and Graham families: Isaiah Cartland (shown above); Isaiah's daughter Mary Rich Cartland, who married William Graham, Scottish immigrant; Mary's son William T. Graham; Isaiah's sister, who was the second wife of William Penn Tuttle of the historic Tuttle Farm family.

From online research, hopefully correct:

Isaiah Cartland was born on 9 September 1829 at Windham, Maine, the son of Charles and Miriam (Robinson) Cartland, both born in New Hampshire.  His paternal grandparents were Pelatiah and Anna (Hanson) Cartland of New Hampshire.  His maternal grandparents were Stephen and Content (Alley) Robinson, born in Kittery, Maine, and New Hampshire respectively.

On 24 August 1852, Isaiah Cartland married Eunice Hacker Rich, who was born 27 December 1827 at Lynn, Masachusetts, the daughter of Thomas and Eunice (Jones) Rich.    Isaiah and Eunice lived in Portland, Maine and raised a daughter, Mary Rich Cartland and a son Thomas P. R. Cartland.

Mary Rich Cartland, whose photograph appears above, was born 13 July 1853 at Brunswick, Maine, the daughter of Isaiah and Eunice Hacker (Rich) Cartland.  Her paternal grandparents were Charles and Miriam (Robinson) Cartland.  Her maternal grandparents were Thomas and Eunice (Jones) Rich.

In 1878, Mary Rich Cartland married William Graham, who was born in Scotland, perhaps in April of 1853. I don't as yet have information on his parents, though I assume they were also immigrants to the United States, as William was only about three when he arrived here.

Mary Rich (Cartland) and William Graham lived at Portland, Maine and had at least three children: William T. Graham; Eunice M. Graham and Paul G. Graham.

Their son William T. Graham was born 30 December 1879 at Manchester, New Hampshire.  On 24 April 1907, he married Lucy Ellen Cartland, who was born 11 December 1879, the daughter of Charles Everett Cartland and Frances Ellen (Tracy) Cartland.  Her paternal grandparents were Cyrus and Phoebe Rogers (Jones) Cartland.  Cyrus was the brother mentioned on the reverse of two of the photographs above.  Lucy Ellen Cartland's maternal grandparents were John Orr Tracy and his wife Octavia Philbrook.  

The last photograph shows Lydia M. Cartland, Isaiah's sister.  She was born 20 October 1831 at Windham, Maine, the daughter of Charles and Miriam (Robinson) Cartland.  Her paternal grandparents were Pelatiah and Anna (Hanson) Cartland.  Her maternal grandparents were Stephen and Content (Alley) Robinson.

On 28 March 1872 at Strafford County, New Hampshire, she became the second wife of William Penn Tuttle of the historic Tuttle farm family.  He was born 26 June 1823 at Dover, New Hampshire, the son of Joseph and Sarah (Pinkham) Tuttle.  His paternal grandparents were William and Anna (Hanson) Tuttle.  His maternal grandparents were Joseph and Elizabeth (Green) Pinkham.    William Penn Tuttle's first wife was Mary Varney.  After Lydia's death, he married Hannah Coffin Hanson.  I believe his only child was with first wife Mary Varney, a son George E. Tuttle, who died in infancy.

By the way, I've mentioned two Anna Hansons in this post, but they were different people.
