Mary Butman Sargent and Joshua Dodge Sargent

Tintypes, Ambrotypes, Mezzotints and Photos from Mary Foster Butman's Photo Album

This blog is mostly focused on some of the Sargents in Maine. But through Mary Foster Butman, who married Joshua Dodge Sargent, we have been able to scan and back up a lot of images of Searsport Butman and Pendleton relatives. These are scanned from a booklet put together by my father with the identifying descriptions scanned as well.   Images are not in order as they are in the booklet.  Here is a link to the booklet with images in order as they were in Mary's album.

These 19th century images are of the following individuals from Sargent family of Alton, Maine and the Butman and Pendleton families of Searsport, Maine.  Shown below are the following names:

Albert Ford, Capt. Charles Gordon, Emerline Park, Emerline Stevens, Evelyn (Pendleton?), Frank Pendleton, Hannah Butman (?), Hannah Ford, Herbert Eugene Sargent, James Butman Sargent, Grace Stormann, James Ford, James Gilmore Pendleton (?), James Pendleton Butman (?), Jay Sargent (?) and Fanny Kirby (?), John Pendleton, Joseph Capen Field, Joshua Dodge Sargent, Lowessa Ford, Mana Pendleton, Margaret Sargent, Mary Butman Sargent, Mary E. Sargent, Nancy Ford, Phineas Pendleton II, Wealthy Pendelton, James B. Ford, Robert Johnson, William Butman, William Park.

New information is always welcome that bears light on the Sargents in Alton, the Sargents in Monroe and prior generations. If you have letters, pictures or other information that you think may bear light on Joshua and Mary Sargent or prior generations of Sargents in Maine, please
