I've "rescued" an old photograph of Ella Berry HOOPER which was taken at the
Gardner and Philbrick Studio in Biddeford, Maine. The photograph appears to
have been taken in the 1880's with Ella looking to be in her 20's or 30's at
the time. In addition to her name someone has written "April 15" on the
back of the photograph.
Based on limited research I believe this may be a photograph of Ella HOOPER
b. January 1852 in Dayton, ME and died 25 October 1890. Ella was listed in
the 1880 census at Biddeford, ME as unmarried and living with her parent(s)
though neither parent was actually included in the household at the time.
I'm hoping that someone from her family can be located so that this
wonderful old family photograph can be returned to the care of family. If
you are a member of this family or know someone who might be, please contact
