Researching Downeast Maine and Maritime Canada Families Together

Mary Rich Cartland, dau Isaiah & Eunice Hacker (Rich) Cartland; m. William Graham

Below are a reprint of a post on the blog Heirlooms Reunited, with photo and family history of Mary Rich (Cartland) Graham, and her family tree.


Family members with pages on this network include her father Isaiah Cartland, her son William T. Graham and her aunt Lydia M. (Cartland) Tuttle.


Cabinet Photo of Mary Rich Cartland, born 1853 Maine, married William Graham

Cabinet photograph of Mary Rich Cartland, taken by M. F. King studio of Portland, Maine.  Mary was the daughter of Isaiah Cartland, who was discussed in an earlier post today.

I found this photograph with three related ones; click the name to see the photograph of that person
  • Isaiah Cartland
  • Lydia M. CartlandIsaiah's sister, who became the second wife of William Penn Tuttle of the Tuttle Farm of Dover, New Hampshire.  
  • William T. Graham, son of Mary Rich (Cartland) Graham and husband William Graham.   He married Lucy Ellen Cartland, his second cousin, I believe.  

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:

Mary Rich Cartland was born 13 July 1853 in 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.

Mary married William Graham in 1878.  I believe he was born in Scotland about 1853 and that he came to the United States about 1856, but other than that I have no information on him as yet.    As the reverse of the photograph indicates, one of the children of Mary and William was William T. Graham.  I believe there were two more children, Eunice and Paul Gordon, and that the family lived in Portland, Maine, or the Portland area.  

Mary died fairly young on 19 November 1901.

I'll discuss her son William T. Graham, photographed as a toddler, in my next post.
