    1. [WELSH] PACKARD - WELSH Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel via
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of Almon PACKARD which was taken at the Merrill Studio in either Lewiston or Norway, ME sometime in the early 1900's. Almon appears to be in his teens or 20's at the time the photograph was taken. It was recovered with others from the Hebron Academy classes of 1907 and 1908 so I'm guessing he is connected to that institution in some manner. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding Almon and his family: Almon Leslie PACKARD was b. 18 Apr 1888 in Newton Center, MA to parents Sidney Eugene PACKARD (b. 8 Dec 1860 in Warren, ME) and Marcia Emma SPEAR (b. 17 Jun 1861 in Warren, ME). Almon had a brother Stacy Leander PACKARD (1891-1934). Almon married Edna E. WELSH or WELCH (b. 11 Apr 1889 in Friendship, ME) on 15 Sept 1917 and they had a daughter Mary E. PACKARD (b. 18 Jan 1920 in Bath, ME). Almon died in Pownal, ME on 16 Aug 1971 and is buried in the Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Warren, ME. Almon's daughter married Thomas VOSMUS in Maine in 1942 and she died in Pownal, ME in 1976. If you are a member of this family, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley
