One cousin, a Seward P. Richardson, obtained a land grant in Ashland in 1888. The photos I'm sending are connected with his family or the Mower family (we're not sure exactly who owned the photo albums that managed to somehow come to be in the possession of my deceased grandfather). Anyone that can shed any light on these can contact me at this email address or by regular mail to 185 Norfolk St, Bangor ME 04401.
