William Luckraft of Preston

Every year I get a lovely friendly update from Art and Louise in Mashpee, Massachusetts, with details of all the family events in the previous year. And often the letter comes with a photo.

Here is one of the most recent, and it shows William Luckraft, born 1869 in Preston, England, who married Julia Thompson and moved to Massachusetts.

William served in Army during the Boer War, and this picture shows him with a letter in his hand and thinking of the woman superimposed on the photo. I assume she is his wife, Julia.

He is about 45 in this picture, though like people of that time he looks about 60.

It could be that the woman is his mother who died in England in 1911.
