R. N. Lewis of Edgecombe Co.; photo by Davenport, Iowa studio
Cabinet photograph of a man identified on the bottom front as R. N. Lewis of Edgecombe Co. The photograph was taken by the W. P. Egbert studio of 312 Brady Street, Davenport, Iowa.
I'm not positive of his middle initial and would appreciate hearing from a reader who has a different take on it. Also, is it Edgecombe County or Edgecombe, Colorado? And if Edgecombe County, what state?
I tried a few searches, such as a fellow living at Edgecombe, Colorado, or born at Edgecombe County, North Carolina and living in the Davenport, Iowa area, or nearly Illinois, and found a few possibilities but nothing definitive. I so wish his first name had been spelled out!
If you recognize this fellow from your family albums or from research, using the few clues, please leave a comment or contact me directly. Thanks!
