Ben Duncan CP

A young man in striped pants and his coat is buttoned only at the top.  He must have been proud of his hat!

This CdV is probably from the 1880’s.  It has rounded corners and only his top button is buttoned.

Wellington E. Howe


I found Wellington Howe born about 1876 to Freeman and Malinda Howe.  They are found in the 1880 Census living in Jefferson, Pousihiek County Iowa.  There is a Wellington Howe buried in the Dodge Center Cemetery at Bagley Iowa along with his parents and many brothers and sisters.

This little boy should have oodles of relatives.

This photo from Craig’s Collection is smaller than a CdV.  It measures 3 x 2 inches.
helen Violet Wood  CP
A beautiful little girl with such pretty curls!
The photographer is Chas Lainer at 31 Third St. 
I found this in a search for him:
CHARLES LAINER was born in Austria, in 1857, and was reared and educated in his native land, attending school in Vienna and other places in Europe, where he also pursued the study of art. He came to the United States, spent some time in Philadelphia and Cincinnati, and in 1882 came to San Francisco and established his present business on Third street.
In 1884 he opened a studio at 715 Market Street…perhaps he used old card stock?? Or perhaps the 1885 guess is questionable.

Helen Violet Wood 1885 (?)
It is hard to guess an age for this child. Maybe two or three years old?
Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again.

Update from Iggy:
Helen Violet Wood (11 Feb 1884/1886 - Oct 1948 in San Francisco, California) was the daughter of William H and Anne R Wood. She married Wallace Covert Price on July 3, 1913.  This was his second marriage and he had seven children prior to marrying Helen.  They had one daughter together. 

The daughter named Patricia Wood Price was born 1 Oct 1917 in Oakland, Alameda, California and apparently died on Sep 1988 in Genoa, Douglas, Nevada.

The dates given for Helen's birth are confusing, they seem to be either 1884 or 1886.

The photographer was a lady!  Mrs. H.N. Sterling from Niles, Mich
Grandma is wearing a decorative hair comb called a peineta.   I will guess that this CdV is from the late 1860’s or early 1870’s.

Hall was the photographer  at 170 E. Madison St. in Chicago
Ellen seems to be holding something in her hands…something all rolled up.  Her gown appears to have dropped shoulders, typical of the fashions in the late 1860’s.  I can also see her ears which usually indicates the later part of the 1860’s or early 1870’s.  Her hair is also parted in an unusual way, I haven’t see that “do” before.
Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again.

Possibility from Iggy:
Ellen Ford nee Hooker (abt 1837 in England), the wife of Cornelius Ford and son Clayton E. Ford (abt 1861 in Wisconsin)

Both Cornelious and Clayton were carpenters. Clayton married Elizabeth C. Pilgrim on 23 Dec 1885 in Cook County, Illinois.

In the 1920 US Census, he is shown living in Chicago with Wife Elizabeth, and children, Whitfield Ford age 28, and Gertrude Ford age 25.
