I have three original carte de visite photographs relating to the family of Harmon W. Tanner. One is of his son, “George Leroy Tanner, born September 1876, died 1881”.One is “Nieces of H. W. Tanner – all about 18 years” and the last is “Nettie Tanner and Adele Logan”. The ones of Nettie and Adele, and of George L. Tanner were taken in Wilmington (Will Co.) IL. The photo of the five nieces of H. W. Tanner was taken in Wooster (Wayne Co.) OH. I’d like to get these photos back to family who will treasure them.
I found George Tanner, age 4, in the 1880 census for Will Co., IL, son of Harmon and Edith Tanner. Living with them was the mother of Harmon Tanner, Hulda, age 73.I followed Harmon to Wayne Co., OH, where he was age 1 in 1850, son of Stephen and Huldah Tanner. Ancestry OneWorldTree shows his given name as Willis Harmon, born 11 Apr 1849, and he had seven siblings – any of whom could have been the parent of the five nieces.
