c1880 Cabinet Photographs of Eliza Ann (Stevens) Norman Jolley and Daughter Hannah Maria (Norman) Tucker

 Cabinet photographs of Eliza Ann (Stevens) Norman Jolley and daughter Hannah Maria (Norman) Tucker of Morris County, New Jersey.  The photographs are mounted in mats measuring a little larger than 10-3/4" by 8".

Note in the enlargement, below, of the handwriting on the right edge of the mat, that in the identification made by Eliza's grandchild, the grandchild erroneously gave Eliza the married name of Tucker.  Eliza's first husband's name was John S. Norman, but their daughter married Freeman Tucker, which apparently was the source of the confusion.

On the reverse of Eliza's photograph:

Hannah Maria (Norman) Tucker:

Hannah's photograph was taken by the Lacey Studio of Morristown, New Jersey.

From brief online research, hopefully correct:  [corrections and additions requested!]

Eliza Ann Stevens was born about 1811 in New Jersey; I don't have information on her parents.  On May 28, 1831 in Morris County, New Jersey, Eliza Ann married John S. Norman, son, I believe, of Samuel and Mary (Keepers) Norman.    John S. Norman died on February 3, 1837 at Milton, New Jersey.

About 1838 Eliza Ann (Stevens) Norman married Samuel Jolley, son of Richard and Amy (Molyneaux) Jolley or Jolly.   Eliza, from what I could gather, had four children with Samuel:
  1. Robert Jolley (1863-1863); died at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania
  2. Edwin Jolley (1844-1917); married Matilda or Sarah Matilda
  3. Frances A. Jolley (about 1846-?)
  4. Lizzie A. Jolly (about 1848-?); married George Quayle
Samuel Jolley died in 1865; Eliza Ann (Stevens) Norman Jolley died in 1902.

Hannah Maria Norman, daughter of Eliza Ann (Stevens) Norman Jolley and John S. Norman, was born about 1832.  On June 30, 1850, Hannah became the second wife of Freeman Tucker, son of Lines and Phoebe (Allen) Tucker.   They had at least two children, daughters Phoebe W. Tucker and Ella Frances Tucker.  Samuel died in Yuba City, California, in 1889.  He's buried there, with his son, Judge William E. Tucker, from his first marriage to Elizabeth Williams Drake.

By 1920, widow Hannah Maria (Norman) Tucker was living with her daughter Phoebe W. (Tucker) Van Gilder and husband Charles VanGilder at Morristown, New Jersey.  She was not in their home by 1930 and may have died by then.
