The Face of Alice I. (Page) Roundy of New London and Concord, New Hampshire (1846-1886)

Alice I. (Page) Roundy of Claremont and Concord, New Hampshire

Alice I. (Page) Roundy of New London and Concord, New Hampshire

Alice I. (Page) Roundy was only 38 years old when she died of peritonitis, in Concord, New Hampshire. Her lovely face looks out from the faded photograph. This would have been taken between 1870 and her death year of 1886. She married in 1869 to Alvin Samuel Roundy, and so she probably posed for this photograph at or after that date.

She wears a dark dress, a shawl, and a cameo pin at her throat. It has been said that “from the Civil War to the World War II era, cameos were the most popular pieces of jewelry most women owned.” Her hair is pinned up in the style of the 1860s, though quite a few strands defy her attempts to tame them.

The photograph studio was owned by Maurice S. Lamprey, who had been a stone cutter prior to the Civil War, and returned home to open a photograph business in Washington Square in Fisherville (Concord), New Hampshire.

It turns out that Alice’s husband is a cousin, though distant, of mine through his mother’s MINER line. Alvin Samuel Roundy remarried two years after Alice’s death, and had a son by his second wife. Alice’s PAGE genealogy can be found directly below.
