Author Bio Introduction
Three generations of the Degerstrom family lived in Derby, Maine from the early to late 1900's. This small railroad town was more like a suburb of Milo with 2,800 combined population.
The 25 year old portrait here with my wife was taken Down Back in Derby, Maine, one of my favorite childhood places Growin' Up in Maine.

The 8 people highlighted throughout the photo (left) include my 7 siblings and me. An enlarged version without any edits is included below to show more detail.
As kids we were less than fond of the photo sessions which is obvious from some of the facial expressions, yet 50 years later it is interesting to note the clothing and hairstyles of the era.
Enlarged photo of Parkman Family Reunion, Milo Maine (ca. 1957)
Earlier this year a new blog was launched featuring the matriarch of the Parkman family shown, my grandmother, and documents the Poetry of Beth Parkman (1893-1975). She is shown above (2nd female full face from the upper right) and my grandfather Earl Parkman is the second male in from the upper right in the top row.
