Re: Wife of Harry Spicer Lorraine

Hello Judie,

I don't know which site you used to look at the marriage of Harry S. Lorraine & Jessie, but if you use the Maine State Archives site at:
you'll see that they have two entries.  One listing her as Jessie A. Cailes and the other as Jessie A. Harwood.

>From my cursory research, I believe she is Jessie A. Harwood, dau. of Charles S. Harwood & Lucy A. Thorndike and is most probably the lady in the following two census returns:

1860 - Lincolnville, Waldo Co., Maine
  Charles Harwood (33)
  Lucy A. Harwood (31)
  Francelia S. (13)
  William E. (9)
  Charles J. (7)
  Jessie A. (4)  <===
  John F. (1)

1870 - Lincolnville, Waldo Co., Maine
  Charles Harwood (54)
  Lucy A. Harwood (44)
  Chas. F. (16)
  Dora J. (14)  <=== really??
  Franklin F. (12)
  Nattie (8)
  Cyrus (6)
  Sarah (2)

Another researcher came to a similar conclusion and wrote:
Massachusetts Death Record:
Jessie A. Lorraine of 2 Meadow Street, Taunton, Ma died 27 April, 1909 at the age of 52 years of Cerebral Hemmorhage.

She is listed as the wife of Harry S. Lorraine and maiden listed as Jessie A. Hardwood.
She was born Lincolnville, ME, daughter of Charles S. Hardwood born in Hope Maine and of Lottie A. Thorndike of Maine. She was listed as a housewife, and buried in Tauton, May Flower Hill Cemetery on 29 April 1909.
