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!
