Barrett - Myra Ellen (Barrett) Lord Dresser (1846-?)

Myra Ellen Barrett was born on December 18, 1846 to John and Dorcas S. (Osgood) Barrett in Blue Hill, Maine. Myra married Seth R. Lord (1845-1873) on November 17, 1867. After Seth died in 1873 Myra married Albina H. Dresser (1833-1903). The twice widowed Myra Ellen (Barrett) Lord Dresser purchased the house at 7 Wesley Avenue from Thomas and Nellie Savage on March 24, 1904. Nell Thornton’s account of the history of the house omitted Myra’s ownership. She may or may not have lived in the house. Myra sold 7 Wesley Avenue to her daughter and son-in-law, James H. and Lizzie Lord Scott on July 7, 1908.
