Arline M. Hammond (obverse)

This photo is the source of the residual image on the reverse of the Hugh H. Butterfield photograph. On the reverse, written in the same handwriting as on the Butterfield photo, is the name Arline M. Hammond. I believe she is the same Arline M. Hammond who appeared in the 1900, Troy, Orleans County, Vermont census as the daughter of Fred and Frances Hammond. Fred's occupation was as a merchant. According FamilySearch.org, Arline was born 30 Nov 1885, and married Levi Houston Vermillion. on 5 Sep 1906. Levi and Arline appeared in the 1910, Princeton City, Mercer County, West Virginia census with their three month old son, Frederick L. Vermillion. Levi's occupation was General Practice Dentist. I found them again in the 1920 Mercer County, West Virginia census with 10 year son, Frederick, and 3 year old daughter, Frances. By 1930, Levi and son, Frederick were living in Princeton, West Virginia, in the household of Levi's older brother, James, and was listed as divorced. See Series: T626 Roll: 2546 Page: 4

 

I was wondering how these two got hooked up. I found Miss Arline M. Hammond listed in the April, 1905 West Virginia school journal, Volume 34, where she had been hired as the music teacher at the Concord Normal School in Athens, West Virginia.

 

I found L. H. Vermillion listed as a 1904 graduate of The Baltimore College of Dental Surgery in The Dental cosmos, Volume 46.
