A remarkable antique photo from the Free family has been located!
I have good news for the researches of the Free family.
I have genealogical information about your family that came from their very hand.
If you are a descendant then I have even better news for you. The information came on the back of a remarkable photo from the Free family.
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 located an amazing photograph of the Free family.
On the back is all of the family members names and married names.
“Theresa and Theodore C. Free Family in 1893.
The little girl on the left is my mother: Theresa E. Free Hiersmann Schnell ,
and then continuing on clockwise Frank Anthony Free,
Mary (Free) Englin, Michael Theodore Free, Joseph Henry
Harrison (he went by Harrison) Free, Theodore Charles Free and Robert (Robey) Free”
I also found it very interesting that the photograph was taken
in the M.T. Free Photography Studio.
Now, I am not related but research showsTheodore Charles Free was born
in 1844 in Baden, Germany and died in 1921 in Rock Island, Illinois.
He married Theresa Mary Wagner who was born 4 Sep 1846 in Pottsville,
Pennsylvania.They were married in 1867 in Rock Island, Illinois.
Their children were Mary Josephine 1868 in Rock Island, Michael Theodore
1871 in Coal Valley, Elizabeth 1874 in Coal Valley, Frank Anthony 1875 in
Arenzville, Joseph Henry Harrison 1878 in Rock Island, Theresa Elizabeth
1883 in Rock Island, Theodore Charles 1886 in Rock Island, Robert
Anthony 1889 in Rock Island, all children were born in Illinois.
