Comments: Marjorie Minola West (Nee: ) | Portland ME United States | 1921-1940 | Comments: This photo is from the Ethel Wight Studio, Portland, Maine. This negative envelope says, “Mrs Katherine Hunter, 80 Cumberland Ave #433.” Why I believe this to be the individual. • The 1935 Portland City Directory lists Charles H Hunter, an electrician living at 80 Cumberland. • The 1936 Portland City Directory available at Ancestry is missing pages 454 to 456. So I am unable to confirm Charles or Katherine in that directory. • The 1937 Portland City Directory lists Charles H Hunter living at 45 Smith. • The 1938 and 1939 Portland City Directories list Katherine M Hunter living at 45 Smith Charles but is not listed like she is Charles’ wife. Also living at 45 Smith are William H and William J. Hunter, Jr. • The 1940 Portland City Directory lists Charles, living at 335 Congress. William and William, Jr. are living at 165 Cumberland. • The 1940 Census lists William Hunter, Jr. as the head of household with his father, his sister Kaytlene, and his niece Marjorie M West living with him. Marjorie is seven years old. • Social Security Applications and Claims identify Marjorie Minola West whose father is Raymond C. West and whose mother is Elizabeth M. Hunter. Marjorie was born 4 April 1933 in Portland. Continued research did not find any references to Elizabeth M. (Hunter) West after the birth of Marjorie. So, I suspect Elizabeth died before Katherine took Marjorie to have her picture taken about 1935. In any event, I believe this is a photo of Marjorie Minola West.
