Carrie J. Whitehouse was born 1855-1952 in Massachusetts to James C. Whitehouse and Martha Whitehouse. Her husband was Truman Allan Cowles 1854–1917, born in Goshen, Hampshire County, Massachusetts and died at Lansing, Ingham County, Michigan. He was the son of Amasa Stetson Cowles 1819–1898 (also seen as Amassa Cowles) and Betsy Breck Williams Cowles, born 1824. His half brother was Clark Wilson Cowles, born 1863.
They married in 1882 below. They moved to Michigan and are both buried at Mount Hope Cemetery in Lansing, Ingham County, Michigan.
Their 2 daughters:
Florence W. Cowles born 1891.
Anne Bryant Cowles Herr 1893–1970, who married Charles Ryman Herr 1891–1973.
NOTE: Carrie's middle initial goes from being an I to a J all through her life in census records. Even on this CDV photo (handwritten by her presumably) it could be either letter. We do not know what her true middle name was. A beautiful, photo. Carrie Cowles lived to be 96-97 years of age. We believe Carrie to have been raised in Florence, Mass in northwestern Northampton, Hampshire County, Massachusetts. Whitehouse is a beautiful surname. Any correction appreciated, email Debra here.

Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
