Liza Ellen (Clark) Yoakum (1855-1927) in TOMBAUGH HISTORY
I have found among some old photographs of my family in Ohio a photo of Liza Ellen Clark (3 Sep 1855 - 8 Sep 1927), who married John Yoakum. It appears to have been made around the 1880's by J. L. Scales, Photographic Artist, Fredericktown, O. It is a 2" x 4" full-figure, studio-background portrait, mounted on paste-board in the old-timey fashion. She looks about 25-35 years of age, wearing a dark dress with her hair parted in the front and pulled back. She was a Tombaugh cousin of my Guittard and Myers ancestors, and was mentioned in TOMBAUGH HISTORY, p. 73. If anyone who is a descendant of Liza Ellen (Clark) Yoakum would like an emailed copy of the photo, please email me at gui tXtard@ swXbe ll. net [without the X's or spaces].
