I came across an old photo album (looks like ca 1890s-1910s to me, some maybe older) with perhaps 40 family portraits. There was no name on the album, and I could only check a few photos for names and found the following written on some of the photo backs (handwriting difficult to decipher on some):
M. G? Williams Joe Tomson Roseville, Ill
Mr. Y? W. Williams Lizzie Tarvin? Monmouth, Ill
R. M. Galbraith Monmouth, Ill
I did not purchase the album, but I know the dealer and he is also interested in getting these to an interested descendant.If anyone has connections to these surnames in Warren County Illinois, I'd be happy to pass along the antique dealer's name and contact info.It's a great album.I have no connection with these surnames, but I dream about finding something like this from my family...so I'm posting this message in case a descendant is dreaming about the same thing!
