Titcomb reunion


Titcomb reunion at Mrs Leila T.Belcher's The Ledge, Clearwater Lake, Maine, USA August 26th 1930. Can you recognise anyone?

Thanks to Rebecca in San Francisco California for identifying John (Jack) Titcomb, Andrew (Bud) Titcomb and her great-grandfather Harold Abbott Titcomb.They are all descended from William Titcomb of Newbury, Mass.

Great photo, Andy! Where did you find it? I believe the caption actually says "The Ledge". It's a lovely cottage near Farmington, Maine that's been in our family for a while. I've been lucky to visit there several times since I was a kid. I emailed this link to my dad, Peter, and he confirmed the handwriting is my great-grandfather's, Harold Abbott Titcomb. Known fondly as Uncle HAT, he had a tendency to label absolutely everything with precision, which has come in very handy for later generations. This photo was taken a few years before my dad was born, but he said he recognizes some faces, including his father John ("Jack") & uncle Andrew ("Bud"). Apparently Leila Belcher was an aunt? I'll ask him to post more specific info here.

Incidentally, we're descended from the William Titcomb of Newbury, Mass. you wrote about in your May 21 posting.

Cheers from San Francisco, California!

All good wishes

The lady in the center of the photo with the stripes down from the shoulders of her dress is Leila Titcomb Belcher, the sister of Harold Abbot Titcomb. On her left in the wide brimmed hat is "Marnie" Brignall, mother-in-law of Harold. Andrew "Bud" Titcomb is standing second from left with the open white collar, and John Abbot "Jack" Titcomb is standing second from right with his face somewhat shadowed.
