Edwin Perry Huband is my great-granduncle. He is the son of my 2nd great-grandparents Heber Albert Huband & Hattie Margaret Cheney. He was born 29 October 1900 in Shelly, Bingham, Idaho. A very short, six years, ten months, and four days later, he died of appendicitis on 11 March 1907 in Logan, Cache, Utah.
The back of the photo reads: “Edwin Huband our Brother” written by an unknown writer, although it is likely that Blanche Octavia Huband may have written it; and “born Oct 29, 1900 died March 11, 1907” written by Blanche’s daughter, and my Grandmother, Mary Margaret Ellis.
Until last week, I did not know there were any photos of Edwin. I found this precious little picture in a folder created by my Grandma that she labeled, “Huband”. The photo is a copy of the original. The original must have been quite damaged. I cleaned the scan up a bit but you can see that it must have torn or experienced a severe stain of some kind.
I was very happy to see that I had already taken a photo of Edwin’s headstone and shared it on FindAGrave.
Happy Thursday, I hope you come across a photo of someone in your family for whom you did not know a photo existed very, very soon! xoxo
