Cabinet Photograph of Mrs. Elizabeth Reed Sparks; Philadelphia studio
Cabinet photograph of a middle-aged woman identified on reverse as Mrs. Elizabeth Reed Sparks; taken by P. Edward Chillman & Co, No. 18 S 8th St., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Was Elizabeth's maiden name Reed? Or was it just her middle name?
I found numerous Elizabeth Reeds in the Philadelphia area, and I found a William and Elizabeth Sparks in the 1880 Census of Philadelphia. That Elizabeth was born abt 1852 in Pennsylvania. William was a sailor.
If you have another candidate for the Mrs. Elizabeth Reed Sparks in the photograph, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
Thanks for stopping by!
