I purchased the subject studio portrait of a couple taken by Smith's California Photo. Car.It is identified on the back of the mount in period ink handwriting:
"Thaddeus Trimmer 47 years old.
Eda Louisa Trimmer 38 years old.
To Cousin Nancy."
These individuals appear in Public Member Trees posted on ancestry.co.The couple is l;sited in the 1880 U.S. Census data for Liberty, Gage Co., NE.
