An unidentified photographer produced this wonderful photograph of a stern looking elderly man. Fortunately, the subject of this portrait is identified. The reverse of the photograph has an inscription (see image below) indicating that the subject’s name is “Harley Place”. Harley Place is wearing clothing that indicates that he was a working man. He is wearing overalls and what appears to be a work shirt. Note his large hands. Those big mitts must have come in handy in his work as a farmer. Harley Smith Place was born in Rhode Island in 1856. He was married to Adreanna Place (1866-1933). She was eleven years his junior. The couple had five children; Walter, Cora, Everett, Reuben, and Jennie. The 1910 US census listed him as a farmer in Killingly, Connecticut. The 1920 census found he and his wife living with a niece and nephew in Killingly and still listing his occupation as farmer. The 1930 census reported Harley and Adreanna continuing to reside with their niece and nephew in Killingly. Harley Place died in 1940 and is buried in Glocester, Rhode Island. His gravestone can be seen below.
