I'm a member of Thanatos.net, which is a website about (mostly) Victorian-era post-mortem portraits. Recently, the site owner acquired a set of family photos of the family of quadruplets.Undated, they look to be from around the late 1870s.There's a shot of 4 quite doleful female relatives/friends holding each of the obviously deceased infants,a (probable) grandmother holding one, a group shot of the quads on a bed (a couple may have still been alive, but the picture's very faded).
one of the father and 4 older children (2 of whom might be boy-girl twins), and one that may be a post-mortem portrait of the mother. The name scrawled (poor penmanship) on the pictures ID's them as the Dohe, Dohl, or Dahl quadruplets, and the photographer was based in Havana, Illinois.There were some Dohes living in that area at the time.
Any information you may have would be appreciated.
