In the photo above, Carrie is seated front and center. The other ladies are unknowns. Most photos of the Raymond family were taken in St. Johns, New Brunswick, Canada, where Carrie was born. Most of the early lineage information below must be taken with a grain of salt. These names and dates are from an old ancestry chart compiled by my mother many years ago, and the Raymond side is one I have yet to flesh out. Maybe you can help.
This is Carrie, above, on her wedding day. Notice the large buttons. My mother has Carrie’s brown, taffeta wedding dress and all the original buttons. My mother wants the dress to be donated later to a historical society in New Brunswick.

*As always, there may be inaccuracies. Did you catch that someone married an Elizabeth Hoyt elsewhere in the Patterson family?
