You are looking at 2 identified photographs of husband and wife LEVI & KATIE HARLOW HAM, taken MAINE. Both photos are in nice shape with some corner wear and a few dirty spots but the images are very clear (see scans). Both photos measure about 4x6.

I have done some research on both photos and this is what I've come up with.

PHOTOGRAPH #1 - LEVI WHITCOMB HAM, born DECEMBER 1858, MAINE. The back of the photograph is identified as such, "1893, LEVI WHITCOMB HAM, BORN 1858, TO FRANK CASWELL." I'm not really sure who FRANK CASWELL was but his wife's photo was for AGNES CASWELL.

PHOTOGRAPH #2 - KATIE TITUS HARLOW HAM, was born JANUARY 15, 1863 to WILLIAM HAM (b1836) & FANNY MARIA TITUS (b:1838 NH.) and she died September 12, 1901. I think KATIE only had one sister and her name was ALMA (b:1861 ME.). The back of KATIE'S photo is identified as such, "KATIE TITUS HARLOW HAM, born in SMITHFIELD, MAINE, JANUARY 15, 1863, photo taken 1893, to AGNES CASWELL."

I found some information on FRANK HODGES CASWELL (b:1866 ME.- d:1953 Norridgeworck, ME.) & wife AGNES GERTRUDE PATTEE (b:1871 ME. - d:1955 MERCER, SOMERSET, ME. They were married December 2, 1892 Norridgewock, ME. & they had children: IDA M., LILLIAN B., ERNEST M., WALLACE E., RAYMOND L., & ALBERT P. I was unable to find a link to Levi & Katie other than they were just friends and they did live in the same town.

NOTE: I think LEVI'S parents were J.B. HAM (b:1827) & PHEBE (b:1831) with siblings SARAH, JOHN & WILMOT but I'm not able to prove this to myself enough to feel comfortable stating it as fact.

According to census records, LEVI & KATE were married in 1882. They did not have any biological children but they did have an adopted daughter named LEAH who was born 1889 NH. Census records show the following:

1900 MERCER, SOMERSET, MAINE - LEVI (41), KATE (37), WILLIAM HARLOW (68) (Kate's dad), EMILY CROMWELL (80) (Levi's aunt).

1910 MERCER, SOMERSET, MAINE - LEO W. (transcribed wrong should be LEVI) ,( KITTLE (transcribed wrong shoud be KATIE) , LEWIS A. ROBBINS (20) (son in law), LEAH ROBBINS (21) (adopted daughter).

1920 NORRIDGEWOCK, MAINE - LEVI W., KATIE T., LEE ROBBINS (born 1911, ME.) (GRANDSON) ****The odd thing is that Lewis & Leah (Lee's parents) are living in Pepperell, Middlesex, Mass. & they have 2 additional children living with them: VERNA M. (b:1912) & EVA E. (b1915 MA.). It just always seems odd to me when one child is left behind. Possibly he was just visiting his grandparents and happen to be there during the census.
