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.

19th Century Photograph Album of the Dunphy & Jenkins Families & more of Sebec, Maine and Dover, Maine area


Large photograph album of cabinet photographs, cartes de visite, tintype, newspaper clippings and a memorial card, pertaining to the photogenic Dunphy and Jenkins families of Piscataquis County, Maine.

The surname Dunphy has several variants, including Dunphey, Dumphy, Dumphee, etc.

The album measures approximately 10-1/2" by 8-1/2" by 2" (excluding the puffed covers).  It contains:
  • 41 photographs, several of which depict the same person
  • the obituary of Stephen Garland of Sebec, Maine
  • several newspaper clippings consisting of notices of marriages in 1895 in the Piscataquis County area
  • scrap of paper with handwritten death information of Stephen Garland; Albina S. Garland and Olevia (Garland) Dunphy.
An alphabetical surname list and an alphabetical list of the people identified in the photographs or mentioned in the newspaper clippings appear at the end of this post.

The marriage notices, obituary, handwritten death information, a poem and the tintype of a young girl were found in a handmade envelope tucked between the CDV of an unidentified woman and the memorial card of Mrs. Dorothy Garland, who died March 13, 1890.  The woman in the CDV, taken by the J. T. Morrison studio of Dover, Maine, may have been Dorothy's daughter, Marcia Olevia (Garland) Dunphy.  The little envelope is a treasure.



The first cabinet photo in the album is identified on the album page as Marcia Olevia (Garland) Dunphy, (1842-1895), daughter of Stephen Garland, Jr., and Dorothy Jane (Cook) Garland and wife of Benjamin Franklin Dunphy.    The album contains photographs of her children and grandchildren; one of the unidentified people in the album might have been her husband, Benjamin Franklin Dunphy.



The obituary of Olevia's father, Stephen Garland, Jr., mentions a pond on the Garland farm at Sebec, Maine, which was presumably what is now known as Garland Pond.  See a map of Garland Pond at the end of this post.


Transcription of the obituary above:

Mr. Stephen Garland, a long time resident of Sebec, died at his home in that town Friday, June 8, aged 79 years, 8 months and 13 days.
The deceased was born in New Durham, Strafford county, N.H., where he learned the trade of house carpenter.  He removed to Exeter, Me., in 1833, where he superintended the erection of the elegant and subsantial residence of the late Col. Frank Hill, then thought to be the best in Penobscot county outside of Bangor.  Here he married Miss Dorothy Cook, who had preceded him from his native State.
In 1836 he purchased land in Sebec, moved his family onto the premises, cleared away the rough places and made a home which he enjoyed for fifty-eight years without change.
His wife died in the winter of 1890, and since that to him sad event, his last years were solaced by the society and kindly ministrations of a daughter, Mrs. B. F. Dunphy, in his own household.  A second daughter, Mrs. Francis Parkman of Sebec, with Mrs. Dunphy, are sole survivors of the family.
He leaves no son to pertetuate his name, but that will long live in the beautiful and romantic lakelet covering a part of the farm, which bears it, and fast becoming a favorite quiet resort of veterans of the late war, Sunday School children and others.
Mr. Garland was long known among his townsmen, neighbors and acquaintances as a man of exemplary character in every respect, of the strictest integrity in all his dealings, and enjoying the confidence and respect of all who knew him in a remarkable degree.  A good citizen and upright man has left us.

Several of the identified people in the album are further identified to note their relationship to Olevia's grandson, Elmer Franklin Jenkins, son of Olevia's daughter Lucy E. (Dunphy) Jenkins and William Horatio Jenkins.  It would appear that the album passed on to Lucy, then Elmer and to his descendants before being lost to the family.

c1870s Photograph Album of Tintypes of the Brown and Miles Families of Vermont and Michigan


c1870s photograph album with 11 tintypes of the Brown and Miles families of Hinesburg, Vermont and Schoolcraft, Michigan.

Other surnames appearing in the album or appearing in the family history of the people pictured:
  • Boynton
  • Burns
  • Earl
  • Livermore
  • Peters
  • Ray
  • Scott
The album measures approximately 5-3/4" by 4" and contains eleven tintypes and gem tintypes.  Not everyone is identified, and the identifications appear to have been made after the album was compiled, with at least one mistake.

The tintypes, in page order:
  • "Addison Brown, Married Aunt Mary Ann, Sister of J. F. Miles".   Actually Addison Makepeace Brown was the son of Mary Ann (Miles) Brown, second wife of Ebenezer Lakin Brown.  Mary Ann (Miles) Brown was the sister of Dr. John Fay Miles.  Addison Makepeace Brown married Mollie Eliza Earl in 1885.
  • Frank Boynton.  Presumably related to Fidelia (Boynton) Miles, wife of Dr. John Fay Miles
  • "Ella Livermore, her mother sister to John Fay Miles".  Ella was the daughter of James Livermore and Helen Juliette (Miles) Livermore, who was a sister to Dr. John Fay Miles.
  • "A Friend of Auntie May" - appears to be a boy of about ten years, but possibly a girl
  • "Auntie May, Allie Peters (Aunt James daughter)" - Aunt James could be Aunt Janes; see for yourself in the second image below.
  • Aunt Helen Ray, Grandpa Miles' Sister".  Helen (Miles) Ray was born in 1835 at Hinesburg, Vermont, daughter of Nathaniel Miles and Roxalana (Bishop) Miles and wife of Ralph Elmer Ray.  She died at Burlington, Vermont in 1880.  "Grandpa Miles" was presumably Dr. John Fay Miles.
  • "Addison, Edd, Ada Brown"; pictured below.  They were the children of Ebenezer Lakin Brown.  Ada was Amelia Ada Brown, whose mother was Ebenezer's first wife Amelia W. (Scott) Brown, who died in 1848.  Edd and Addison were Edward Miles Brown and Addison Makepeace Brown, whose mother was Ebenezer's second wife Mary Ann (Miles) Brown.
  • "School Friends of Auntie May" - facing pages with tintypes of two young women
  • "Ada Brown"; Amelia Ada Brown, daughter of Ebenezer Lakin Brown and first wife Amelia W. (Scott) Brown.
  • "Charles and Mary Miles", shown below.  Although two people are mentioned on the reverse of the mat of this gem tintype, only one young man is pictured, presumably the Charles Miles mentioned. Charles may have been Charles Noble Miles, born in 1848 at Hinesburg, Vermont, son of Dr. John Fay Miles and Fidelia (Boynton) Miles.  Charles married Helen or Ellen J. Burns of New York; he died in 1928 in Idaho.  Fittingly, Charles had a sister, Mary Ann Miles.
