TBT- Photos of Yesteryear- Irving Maine

Spotlighting vintage photos from my large photo archive
This week it is-

Irving Clayton Maine [1858-1928]
oldest brother to my Great-Great Grandfather
Ralph Maine [1872-1939]

Irving was the second child [and first son] born to Erastus & Eliza (Pierce) Maine. He was born in Rice County, Minnesota where his family had taken refuge following increased uprisings from local Native American peoples in Faribault County. Later he returned home with his family.

Irving married Emma Thompson, and they had 3 sons-- Glade, Glen & Basil. They lived & farmed north of Winnebago, MN for many years.

In 1928, Irving died unexpectedly from heart problems. Emma remained on the farm until her death in 1941. Today, a Great-Grandson lives on the family homestead.
