Researching Downeast Maine and Maritime Canada Families Together

Laura Beatrice Hutchinson, b. 1901 Mason, Maine; m. Harland J. Shaw, b. 1906, Maine


Laura Beatrice Hutchinson was born 8 June 1901 at Mason, Maine, the daughter of Ervin L. and Charlotte Augusta "Lottie" (Mills) Hutchinson.  


On 26 May 1939, Laura married Harland J. Shaw of Paris, Maine.  He was born about 1906 in Maine, the son of Mark P. and Lois H. (Knight) Shaw.  


See a blog post about a circa 1910 real photo postcard of Eastport, Maine, showing a crowd waiting for the sideshow to begin.  The card, though apparently never mailed, was addressed to Miss Laura B. Hutchinson from Uncle Fred.  A reader speculates that Uncle Fred was Fred Hutchinson, who was Laura's uncle or great uncle.

I changed the post quite a bit to eliminate unsourced information and duplicate entries.

Please look over the information above to see if any glaring errors jump out at you.  I'm editing it to show your theory about Uncle Fred.  Thanks!

I knew Laura Shaw well. She was my grandfather's (Loton Hutchinson) cousin. The Uncle Fred referred to would have been my grandfather's father-Frederick Hutchinson :)  I would love to learn more about Laura's family if you have any information.
