Subject: [Oxford Co ME] HEATH Family photograph
Date: Fri, 20 Mar 2009 08:46:31 -0700


I've "rescued" an old photograph of Josiah Cecil HEATH which was taken at
the Miss Libby Studio in Norway, Maine. The photograph is dated 1897 with
Josiah appearing to be in his 20's at the time it was taken. Based on
limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding
Josiah and his family:

Josiah C. HEATH b. 1869 in ME to parents Alonzo Howard HEATH (b. 29 Apr 1831
in Gilead, ME) and Sarah "Sally" Wheeler BLODGETT (b. 16 Sept 1836 in ME).
Josiah married Grace R. SYMONDS on 14 Oct 1895 in Greenwood, ME.

Census records provide the following information:

Sarah B. HEATH, wife, age 33, Keeping House, born NH

Addison J. HEATH, grandson, age 6 months, born Nov 1899, born ME

I am hoping to locate someone from his family so that this wonderful old
photograph can be returned to the care of his family. If you are a member
of this HEATH Family, or you know of someone who might be, please contact
me.

Thanks,
Shelley
