Seaver and Hildreth Family in Leominster, Mass. in 1906 -- Post 799 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

  I can't help it, I can't do a wordless post! This is one of my favorite photographs: 

This digital image is of the Seaver and Hildreth family in front of their home in about 1907.  This ancestral home is in Leominster, Massachusetts at 149 Lancaster Street and is still standing.  The persons in the photograph are (from the left):

*  Evelyn Seaver (1903-1978), daughter of Frederick and Bessie (Richmond) Seaver.
*  Stanley Richmond Seaver (1905-1910), son of Frederick and Bessie (Richmond) Seaver.
*  Marion Frances Seaver (1901-2000), daughter of Frederick and Bessie (Richmond) Seaver.
*  (in back of Marion) Harry Clifton Seaver (1885-1952), son of Frank and Hattie (Hildreth) Seaver
*  (standing) Frank Walton Seaver (1852-1922), father of Harry Seaver and Frederick Seaver, and son of Sophia (Newton) Hildreth
*  (standing) Frederick Walton Seaver (1876-1942), son of Frank and Hattie (Hildreth) Seaver.
*  (seated) Hattie Louisa (Hildreth) Seaver (1857-1920), daughter of Sophia (Newton) Hildreth
*  (standing) Alma Bessie (Richmond) Seaver (1882-1962)
*  (seated) Sophia (Newton) Hildreth (1834-1923).

This is a four-generation photograph, and is the only photograph I have of Harry Seaver, Frank Walton Seaver, and Sophia (Newton) Hildreth.  

Frederick Walton and Alma Bessie (Richmond) Seaver are my paternal grandparents - my father Frederick Walton Seaver (1911-1983) was born in 1911.  Frank Walton and Hattie Louisa (Hildreth) Seaver are my great-grandparents.  Sophia (Newton) Seaver  (1834-1923) is my second great-grandmother, the widow of Edward Hildreth (1832-1899).  

The digital image was cropped from a larger photograph of the entire house as shown below:

I colorized a black and white photo using the MyHeritage tools. 

This photograph is all part of our family history.
