Photograph Showcase: Edwin Perry Huband, our brother

HUBAND, Edwin
Edwin Perry Huband

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
