c. 1901 Photograph of Helen Sherman Arthur as a toddler; by Eastport, Maine studio



Circa 1901 photograph of young Helen Sherman Arthur, who was born about 1900 in Massachusetts, the daughter of Arthur S. Sherman, born at Lawrence, Massachusetts about 1872, and his wife Mary Louise (Young) Arthur, who was born 19 March 1876 at Eastport, Maine.  The photograph was taken by the Frazier studio at Eastport, Maine.






Helen's paternal grandparents were David and Janet (Black) Arthur, both born in Scotland, possibly both at Paisley Mid Lothian, but who emigrated to the United States and settled at Lawrence, Massachusetts.  Her maternal grandparents were Judson D. Young, who was born 2 February 1850 at New Brunswick, Canada, and his wife Isabella G. (Robinson) Young, who was born 17 April 1850 in Scotland. 


I found Helen living with her parents in Lawrence, Massachusetts in the 1910 Census.  In the 1920 Census, she's living in Lawrence with her father and apparently a second wife.  It's likely that Mary Louise Young had died before 1920.


I lost track of Helen after that.   Whether she married and raised a family, I don't know.  Hopefully a reader will come forward with news of her.
