I have an original 8”x10” photograph of “Thornton Shaw Adams - born April 5, 1900 - age two months”, which I’d like to get back to descendants or family members. Photo was taken in Evanston (Cook Co.) IL. The photo is of his christening, and was taken in a photo studio.
I found Thornton with his parents in the Evanston, IL census, at age 8 months (census says he was born Apr 1900). He was son of Elmer H. Adams, a lawyer and wife Leona W. Adams. Still in Evanston in 1910. Thornton’s WWI Draft Registration gives his full name, showing in 1918, he was a student at Yale University, New Haven, CT. In 1930, family lived in Flint (Genesee Co.) MI. By 1940, he was living in Cook Co., IL, and was a Merchandise Mgr. with a wife and two daughters. Google shows his date of death was 1 Jul 1963 in Evanston, IL
