The couple's marriage record shows them living in Saco and Biddeford around the time of the 1930 census. It appears that George was the son of George E. and Sadie E. (Burnham) Bragdon of Saco, who married in 1894. Here is the family in 1910, 1920, and 1930.

Rose was evidently the daughter of Dona and Adele (Labonte) Chretien of Biddeford, who married in 1904. Adele was widowed by 1930, died in 1959, aged 85 years, and was buried in St. Joseph Cemetery, Biddeford.

I'm looking for information on the living family members of George Bragdon, son of George E and Rose Chretien. George was born in 1931 in the Saco area.  George spent many years living in Pineland and then in group homes.  My husband became his legal guardian over 10 years ago.  He often talks about his family members, a sister, a niece.  He fondly remembers his mother.  If you have any information on how to contact these family members it would be greatly appreciated.

Here's Rose F. Bragdon's obituary from the Biddeford Journal of 18 Apr. 1988:

BIDDEFORD - Rose F. Bragdon, 79, formerly of Saco, died Friday at The Elms nursing home in Old Orchard Beach. She was born in Biddeford on Oct. 28, 1908, a daughter of Donat and Adele Labonte Chretien. She moved here 13 years ago after living most of her life in Saco. Mrs. Bragdon worked for several years at the Bates Manufacturing Co., and for several years at the Beane Nursing home, Saco. She was a communicant of Notre Dame Church, Saco. Her husband, George Bragdon, died in 1963. Surviving are a son, George Bragdon Jr. of South Portland; two daughters, Rita Boutin of Biddeford and Adele Letallier of Saco; 11 grandchildren and 16 greatgrandchildren.

"Letallier" should read "Letellier." I suspect that Donald may be able to fill in some blanks.
