I saw the name Soule connected with Batchelder and I'm wondering if there could be a family connection. My ggrandmother is Ellen Venesta Batchelder b 5 Jul 1853 in Levant, ME (daughter of Mark Batchelder and J. Elizabeth Coffin) d 21 Aug 1886 Dexter, ME, m 31 Dec 1868 to Eliab Warren Eaton of Dexter, ME. Eliab's brother Charles Warren Eaton b 20 Sep 1871 m (Mary) Rae Robinson and are the parents of Mary Rae Eaton b 25 Nov 1925 who m Arnold J. Soule (son of Elbert and Velma Soule). Mary and Arnold are the parents of Douglas Jackson Soule and Cheryl Ann Soule. Any connection?
Sorry I don't have any information on the artist but I have heard of him. Have you tried google.com search engine?
