    1. [HOYT] HOYT Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of A. P. HOYT which was taken at the Jones Studio in Providence, Rhode Island. The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1870's with the young man in the photograph likely in his 20's at the time it was taken. The photograph was recovered along with others belonging to the Class of 1878 from Brown University including both students and faculty. Based on that knowledge I was able locate information regarding Albert Pierce HOYT who was a member of the Class of 1878 at Brown. With limited research I've gathered the following information regarding Albert and his family: Albert Pierce HOYT was b. 29 Nov 1857 in Brighton, MA to parents David Webster HOYT (b. 16 Apr 1833 in Amesbury, MA) and Mary Elizabeth PIERCE (b. 21 Jul 1834 in Roxbury, MA). It appears that Albert was the only child born to this couple, though his father married a second time in 1868 to Martha Jane GUILD and three additional siblings were born including, Elizabeth G.; Harold Williams; and Percival C. HOYT all in Providence, RI between 1870 and 1877. Albert married Anna or Annie Lunette DODGE (dau of Jared C. & Olive P. DODGE) on 15 Apr 1884 in Providence, RI. Albert died 7 Oct 1890 in Providence, RI at the age of 32. Census records provide the following information: 1870 census of Providence, RI: David W. HOYT, age 37, a Teacher, born MA Martha J. HOYT, age 34, Keeping House, born MA Albert P. HOYT, age 12, at School, born MA Elizabeth G. HOYT, age 3 months, born RI + 1 Domestic Servant 1880 census of Providence, RI: David W. HOYT, age 47, born MA, a High School Teacher, parents born MA Martha J. HOYT, wife, age 44, born MA, Keeping House, parents born MA Albert P. HOYT, son, age 22, a Bank Clerk, parents born MA Elizabeth G. HOYT, dau, age 10, born RI, at School Harold W. HOYT, son, age 7, born RI Percival C. HOYT, son, age 3, born RI + 1 House worker + 1 Dressmaker I am hoping to locate someone from this HOYT Family so that the photograph can be returned to its rightful place, with family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley
