For more information, see blog entries on Isaiah Cartland, his wife Eunice Hacker (Rich) Cartland, their daughter Mary Rich Cartland and her son William T. Graham, as well as Isaiah Cartland's sister Lydia M. (Cartland) Tuttle.

Below are a reprint of a post at the blog Heirlooms Reunited with photographs and family history of the Cartland and Graham families, and a family tree of Isaiah Cartland.


Cabinet Photo of Isaiah Cartland, born 1829, Windham, Maine

Cabinet photo of an older gentleman identified on reverse as Isaiah Cartland, brother of Cyrus.  The photograph was taken by Lamson studio of Portland, Maine. 

I found this photograph with three related ones:

  • Isaiah's sister Lydia (Cartland) Tuttle
  • Mary Rich (Cartland) Graham, Isaiah's daughter who married William Graham.  The ID gives birth and death dates for Mary.
  • William T, Graham, son of Mary Rich (Cartland) Graham and husband William Graham.  This photo has their son, who was born 30 December 1879 and died 21 September 1927.  He married Lucy Ellen Cartland, his second cousin, I believe.  The ID gives birth and death dates for William T. Graham.

I'll be featuring the other photographs in my next three posts.  Two of the photographs mention Ruth, daughter of William T. Graham, so before they ended up in an antique shop, they must have been in the possession of a relative or friend of Ruth Graham.

From online research, hopefully correct:

Isaiah Cartland was born 9 September 1829 in Windham, Maine, the son of Charles and Miriam (Robinson) Cartland, both of whom were born in New Hampshire and moved at some point to Windham, Maine. 

Isaiah's paternal grandparents were Pelatiah and Anna (Hanson) Cartland, who were both born in New Hampshire and later moved to Maine.  It was interesting coming across Anna Hanson of Dover, New Hampshire, as I have Hanson relatives from there.

Isaiah's maternal grandparents were, I believe, Stephen and Content (Alley) Robinson, both from towns near the Maine/New Hampshire border.

In 1852 Isaiah married Eunice Hacker Rich, who was born 27 Dec 1827 in Lynn, Massachusetts, the daughter of Thomas and Eunice (Jones) Rich.  I don't have any information on the parentage of Thomas Rich, but Eunice Jones was the daughter of Amos and Eunice Rich.

Interestingly, I found a photograph online of James Rogers Rich [the handwriting in the caption could also be read as James Robins Rich], presumed to be a photograph of the brother of Isaiah's wife Eunice Hacker Rich, though I can't confirm that.  Strangely, he bears a resemblance to Isaiah.  See what you think:

Isaiah and Eunice lived in Portland, Maine and raised a daughter, Mary Rich Cartland and a son Thomas P. R. Cartland.  

See other posts, with photographs, on Isaiah's daughter Mary Rich (Cartland) Graham and her son William T. Graham.
