These postcards were in the collection of Lendall Harmon. I think they were purchased around 1940, but there are no dates on them. If you can help me date the pictures, I'll appreciate it. Click on the thumbnails to see the larger pictures.

CAN YOU IDENTIFY?
These pictures were sent to me in the hopes that one of our visitors might be able to identify them.
George Washington Lunday, on the left, is one of the Wm. Lundy children born in 1854 in Ft. Fairfield. He and Thomas Lunday are the only two children who did not spell their names LUNDY. George must have left the Fort Fairfield area in his twenties as he married Ida Franciska Matthews in 1884, in Vesper, Wis. . Can you identify the lady of the right? Could she be Ida, wife of George Lunday? Or, perhaps, Phoebe or Sarah Russell? If you have any ideas about the persons shown, please contact Marilyn @ [email protected]

James H. Holmes was born in Lexington, MA 11/18/1800 and was taken to Nova Scotia in 1812 by his father David, a Loyalist. He married Sarah Simpson and they had 11 children, many born in Nova Scotia and the rest at Wade Plantation, ME. After Sarah died, he married Jane, widow of William Randall fro Pembroke. There were 3 children from this marriage. James and Jane had 3 children and the second one was Stephen Waterhouse Holmes. Jane is buried in the Holmes Cemetery, but it isn't known where James is buried. He died 2/24/1885. Samuel Holmes may have been his brother. James had a son Samuel that was an officer in the Civil War and moved to Washington state in 1910. Can anyone help with this family?
