I am looking for information about ALBERT H. IRVING, specifically, and any of his ancestors, generally. He was born in Oxford, Maine, probably about 1855 - 1860. He married, probably about 1875, near or in Otisfield or Oxford, Flora Belle (or some variation of this spelling) Scribner, b. Otisfield, Me. February 14, 1859 to Andrew Jackson Scribner and Ruth Cobb, who were married in Otisfield August 28,1852. It is my understanding that Albert lived and worked in Oxford his entire life, working at the Oxford Woolen Mills as a supervising weaver. He and his wife divorced shortly after their daughter, Flora Etta, was born in 1876. Flora Belle remarried to a Lincoln, although I don't know when. Albert may or may not have remarried. He was listed in the 1906 census for Oxford, but not listed as a guest in his granddaughter's wedding article in 1921 - this may or may not be relevant to his death date. My grandmother, Flora Etta's daughter, remembered that Albert had been killed as a result of being thrown from a horse. There are Irving's all over Maine/Nova Scotia/Canada, but I have found no leads whatsoever as to Albert's life or parentage. Does any of this sound familiar to anyone? Thanks, Mary Winslow
