Maud Russell Barnard (unconfirmed, could be Sarah Livingston Barnard), 1882
[two photos in album both labeled as Maud] 1868 - 1903; parents: George Middleton Barnard and Ellen Hooper Russell; married, 1890, Henry Durant Cheever;

Her father, George Barnard (see in this photo was born in Brookline and was a decorated colonel in the civil war. By 1880, the family had already moved to Mattapoisett, Massachusetts so the inclusion of the sisters in this album of Brookline children remains a mystery. She divorced Mr. Cheever who created a minor stir in the society pages when he then married a singer, Zora Horlocker in 1899. Maud died in Paris four years later.
