19th Century Photograph of Mrs. Boughton of Brooklyn, New York, friend of Mrs. Sarah (McGeorge) Charlock

19th century photograph of Mrs. Boughton of Brooklyn, New York, a friend of Sarah (McGeorge) Charlock, to whom, according to information on the reverse, Mrs. Boughton  sold a Victorian love seat and large rocker when she moved from Brooklyn.

I don't have information on the identity of Mrs. Boughton.  Perhaps a reader has done research on the Boughton, McGeorge and/or Charlock families and can make a connection.

Sarah Ann McGeorge was born about March 1840 at Athens, Pennsylvania, daughter of Robert Leslie McGeorge and Betsey McGeorge.

On 11 September 1867, at Washington, D.C., Sarah married James Cornelius Charlock, son of Henry and Charlotte Albin (Nichols) Charlock.  James was born 23 July 1838 at Fishkill, New York.

The couple had, I believe, five children, the youngest of whom was Laura S. Charlock, mentioned on the reverse of the photograph as its owner.

Laura was born 4 October 1883, at Brooklyn, New York, and died at Bridgeport, Connecticut, in 1977.  I don't believe she married.

If only I had a photograph of the Victorian love seat and rocker!
