I have good news for researchers of the Maltbie family. Your family's antique photograph album has been located!
I am Robert D. King and in my travels, I see family photos lost in antique stores and for sale on ebay. I think that is sad knowing that there are family tree researchers and descendants, that would treasure those photos. So I have decided to try and do something about it by returning as many as I can to their rightful families.
So I buy photos with names and dates or places on them and list them on my webpage, so descendants of these lost souls can find them and bring them home. The thousands of photographs are mostly from the 1800's and include Tintypes, Daguerreotypes, Cabinet Cards, Carte-de-visites, Personal Picture Postcards, Photo Albums and Yearbooks.
Recently, I was able to acquire the following album:
Wolcott Maltbie Families Photo Album from Ohio
This ( 8 x 11 x 2.5 inches) album has a red fabric covering with a white rose on the cover. It features 63 portraits and 6 of them are tintypes and at least one has a Civil War stamp. There are four antique greeting cards from friends and family.
This unique album has pages of single cabinet cards, pages of 4 carte-de-vistas per page and similar pages cut to accommodate double cabinet cards. The amazing thing is the almost without exception the names in the album are duplicated on the backs of the photos.
The names in the album are:
Harold C. Wolcott ---- Newton Falls, Ohio Orvis Orlando Wolcott --- Wedding picture ------ Warren, Ohio Carrie Maria Maltbie --- Wedding picture ------ Garrettsville, Ohio Pansy Gertrude Wolcott and Harry Pierre Wolcott ------ Warren, Ohio Julia Louise Maltbie ------ Maria Hosmer ---- Maryville, Missouri Julia Bostwick = Grandma Maltbie a baby photo of Hazel Burns who is to become Mrs. Sam McFall Frank Burns ----- Warren, Ohio Hazel Burns as a young girl who is to become Mrs. Sam McFall -------- Julia Louise Maltbie Stow ----- Jefferson, Ohio Dosia Haines or Haine ------- Stepmother Maltbie ----- Warren, Ohio Harry Pierre Wolcott ----- Warren, Ohio Hazel Burns as a toddler who is to become Mrs. Sam McFall -------- Warren, Ohio from Mother(Julia Bostwick Maltbie) to Carrie --- 58 years of age 1892 ----- Warren, Ohio Edwin Maltbie ---------------- Warren, Ohio Ralph and Ruth Maltbie ----- Warren, Ohio Julia Louise Maltbie ----- Warren, Ohio Sophronia, Altine & Rose Alcock Minta Osborne (Osborn ?) wife of Tom from Berea, Kentucky 2 photos of the same man One as a young man ----- Ashtabula, Ohio And the other as a middle aged man ----- Warren, Ohio Sophronia Alcock --- 2 yrs 5 mos. --- Painesville, Ohio Rev. and Mrs. Holiett from Braceville --- Zanesville, Ohio
