19th Century Photograph Album of Ohio Families: Reed, Frasher, Popham, Kuntz, etc.


Nineteenth century photograph album containing cabinet photographs, cartes de visite and tintypes by mostly Ohio studios, with others from Kansas and Pennsylvania.


The predominant surname is Reed from Mt. Vernon, Ohio; Nevada,  Ohio; and Wooster, Ohio.

One caveat:  in one case, the name written on the page did not match up with the name written on the back of the photograph; hopefully that was an anomaly.

The surnames mentioned:

?? [30]GGrice
BBarnesKKuntz [3]
CCainMMcClellan [2]
ColemanPPopham [3]
DD ?RReed ]14]
FFrasher [4]SSnyder

An alphabetical list of people identified in the photographs - some are in more than one - appears at the end of this post.  

Below, four children of S. D. Reed, presumably Squire D. Reed:


Below, Mrs. William Frasher [her name is written faintly at the bottom of the album page].  Could she have been Mary C. (Butcher) Frasher, second wife of William Harrison Frasher?


Below,  facing pages with the cabinet photographs of Thomas Popham and Lydia (Britton) Popham, taken at the Philip Edward Chillman studio of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  They were both natives of Ohio who moved to Philadelphia.
