New England Photographs

Family of William J Paige and Margaret Jenkins


William and Margaret (Jenkins) Paige’s first child, Augustus Ezra, or “Zeke”, was born April 13, 1905. Here is a picture of Margaret and Zeke, taken soon after his birth, in Maine:

Their third child, Cecelia, was born July 5, 1911. This is Cecelia, age 9, and probably her brother Charles, who was born in 1915:

Their youngest child, James, was born November 26, 1924. Here he is at about the age of 5:

The next two photographs came to me with a estimated date of the 1940’s. The first is of Margaret Paige, and the second is daughter Cecelia:

The Paiges’ son Jerome married Grace Hughes on November 5, 1944. This picture of the two of them was dated as sometime before the wedding:

These next two pictures were evidently both taken during a visit of James Paige and his wife Helen to Zeke and his wife Ann, in 1947:
