    Photograph of Fields and Larkins?
    This photograph is of three couples, a single man on the right, and two kids sitting on the grass. The older couple on the left we think is either Alice (Field) Hanley and her husband George Hanley or Helen Field and Edward Patrick (the "Major") Dunn. One of the younger couples, perhaps the one in the middle, we believe is Francis and Kathryn Larkin. The other couple, and the single gentleman on the right, are unknown. The children are unknown, as well, but we believe the one on the left may be Margaret Dunn (daughter of Helen and Edward) and one of her sisters (Annie, Helen or Agnes).

    Ancestors Outside The Farm, Whitefield, ME 1925
    This photo is of members of the Dunn and Field families in front of the farm built by John Field's sons in Whitefield, ME. A handwritten note on the back dates the photo to 1925. Among the people in the photo, we think, are Alice (Field) Hanley and her husband George Hanley, Leo Francis Dunn, Sr. (as a relatively young man), and Edward Patrick (the "Major") Dunn; Helen (Field) Dunn, wife of the Major, would not be shown here because she died in 1903. The younger people on the steps are unknown, but may include one or more of Edward and Helen's children (and Leo's siblings), Annie, Agnes, Margaret, Helen, Thomas and/or Joe.

    1910 Census, Augusta, ME (Family of Edward Patrick "the Major" Dunn)
    Edward Patrick (the "Major") Dunn, as head of household with his six children, living on Middle Street in Augusta, Maine in 1910. Edward's wife Helen (Field) Dunn is not listed on the census, as she passed in 1903 from the Typhoid fever outbreak in Augusta and surrounding towns that year.
    1920 Census, Augusta, ME (Family of Edward P. 'the Major' Dunn)
    1920 Census, Augusta, ME (Family of Edward P. "the Major" Dunn)
    Edward P. Dunn is now living at 37 Sewall Street. Helen (Field) Dunn passed in 1903, a victim of the Typhoid epidemic in Augusta and surrounding towns that year. Children at home now include only Margaret, Helen and Leo. Rose Fox, identified as a sister-in-law and housekeeper, lives with the family.

    When I was a child in the 60s and 70s we would visit "the aunts" at 37 Sewall Street. The aunts, who were actually my great-aunts, were the Major's four daughters (Anne, Agnes, Helen and Margaret, whom we called "Auntie"). We never went to Augusta without visiting the aunts. I remember great food, helping with chores, and playing cards, usually canasta or cribbage.
