  • These two photos were shared by Kenneth Orvis who provides the descriptions

 -  from the personal family album of my great grandfather Seth Gordon Hastings.   He served as Principal of Bloomingdale Academy during the 1869-70 and 1870-71 school years. 

After he resigned the school hired his brother to replace him (in his memoir he only mentions him as “Brother” in that context but it’s almost certainly Aaron Healy Hastings).

While serving as Principal of the academy he fell in love with and married Edith Towell (my great-grandmother), from near Harveysburg, who was a student at the Academy

 taken at the Noel and Adams studio in Rockville shortly after their marriage (03 Feb 1870) near Harveysburg - she is wearing her wedding dress
