From Encyclopedia of Massachusetts, biographical--genealogical; (Volume 1):
"Alvin E. Estabrook. A veteran of the Civil War, Mr. Estabrook honorably bore a name founded in Massachusetts two centuries before his birth, a family of which he was of the seventh American generation. He was a son of Cyrus M. Estabrook, of Westminster and Princeton, Massachusetts, farmer and land owner. Alvin E. Estabrook was born near the old Estabrook homestead at Westminster, Massachusetts, August 29, 1841, and died in Leominster, Massachusetts, June 27, 1916. His parents moved to Princeton, Massachusetts, in 1845, and there and at Leominster his after life, a period of seventy-one years, was spent. He attended the district school nearest the farm, and at times assisted his father in work at the farm. At Princeton, when the State of Massachusetts was enlisting nine months men, he enlisted in the Fifty-third Regiment, Massachusetts Volunteers, and saw service at the front. At the age of twenty-three in 1864, he moved to Leominster, Massachusetts, there entering the employ of F.A. Whitney, a manufacturer of baby carriages. He remained with Mr. Whitney many years, became foreman of the wheel room, and so continued for twenty years. Close attention to the confining details of factory work as foreman broke his health and he was compelled to abandon his trade. He then engaged in the real estate business very successfully, promoting and carrying through some important transactions in lands and improved property. He also dealt in lumber and kept active until his death. Both he and his wife were active members of the Congregational church. Mr. Estabrook married, April 3, l866, Harriet A. Roper, daughter of John Roper, a prominent citizen of Princeton, Massachusetts. Mr. and Mrs. Estabrook were the parents of two children, Harriet I., born June 17, 1867, died July 23,1871; Alvin C., born February 18, 1874, died July 23, 1884. Mrs. Estabrook survives her husband, a. resident of Leominster, Massachusetts."

A wonderful photo of a Civil War veteran. How wonderful to also have his 1870's Leominster MA physical address handwritten on reverse.
