Researching Downeast Maine and Maritime Canada Families Together
Mary A. Proctor was born 15 April 1874 at Salem, New Hampshire, the daughter of Horace Fernando Proctor and Theresa Albina (Hitchings) Proctor, born in Bridgton, Maine, and Malden, Massachusetts respectively.
Worryingly, I also found a birth record showing Mary's mother as Flora. Hopefully someone reading this will have personal knowledge of the family and will leave a comment.
Mary's paternal grandparents were Samuel C. and Lavina (Thompson) Proctor, born in St. Stephen, New Brunswick, and Bridgton, Maine, respectively.
See scans of the pages of Mary A. Proctor's 1880s era autograph album.
In the 1920 Census of Bridgton, Maine, Mary A. Proctor was living in a household by herself and was listed as the proprietor of a cleaning and pressing business.
