NOTE: Interestlingly, the Raymond A. Leger Home Page states: "The Redland name has gone through several variations as Redlon, Ridlon, Ridlen, Ridley, Redley and has spread from Maine to all areas of the United States and beyond. The common ancestor may be Magnus Redlon (Redland) of Saco, Maine, originally a native of the Orkney Isles, in Scotland. While some Redlands can be found in the United States today, they can still be found in in larger numbers in the Orkney Isles of Scotland. The Redland surname in the United Kingdom has evolved into Ridland."
Apparently Charles went to school with Alice & Ned Knox. We found a couple named Alice and Ned Knox in New Hampshire census records for this time period. The New Hampton Academy School was started in 1821, and became the New Hampton Literary and Biblical Institution, It is still running today. A beautiful piece!

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)
