Subject: [RICKER] RICKER Family Photographs
Date: Thu, 9 Feb 2012 09:20:39 -0800

I've "rescued" two RICKER Family Photographs. The first is one of Frederick
S. RICKER which was taken at the Cross Photo Studio in Salem, Massachusetts.
The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1880's or 1890's with
Frederick likely in his 20's at the time. The second photograph is one of
Florence RICKER of Portland, ME and was taken at the Lamson Studio in that
city. This photograph also appears to have been taken in the 1880's or
1890's with Florence likely in her teens or 20's at the time.

Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information
regarding the RICKER Family pictured in the photographs:

Florence RICKER was b. 24 Aug 1860 in Portland, ME to parents Joseph S.
RICKER (b. 19 May 1821 in Lebanon, ME) and Jane HUNTRESS (b. 6 Jan 1820 in
Barnstead, NH). Florence was one of 4 children born to this couple
including, Freeman Alonzo; Eldora; Florence; and Caroline RICKER, born in
Ossipee, NH and Portland, ME between 1849 and 1864.

Florence first married Frederick W. HOBSON (b. 3 Jun 1852 in Portland, ME)
on 7 Jan 1885 in Deering, ME. Florence's second marriage was to Stephen
BARTLETT (b. 6 May 1858 in Boston, MA) on 4 Jun 1895.

I am hoping to be able to locate someone from the family so that these
wonderful old photographs can be returned to their rightful place, with
family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might
be, please contact me.
