Photo Number 338
Aunt Fan has a last name! This is a CdV. Fan Lister will you give up any of the mystery that surrounds these old calling cards?
This is the back of the CdV. J.H. Hamilton of Sioux City Iowa was the photographer. He was in business in Sioux City from 1868 to shortly after 1890. If we knew his address, we could pin point the date..but sadly we do not have that info on the back of the card.
How old do you think Fan looks in this photo? Norkio commented that she thought yesterdays photo looked 1870 ish…from the frizzy hair. Perhaps we will find her in a census..is Lister her maiden name or her married name?
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
Update from Iggy!
Fannie Hannant was born in August of 1859 in Iowa..
This photo would have been taken after her marriage in 1882, she was 23 years old when she got married.
Fannie married a Mr. Lister..I do know his name..we will meet him tomorrow.
Fannie apparently had four children..that was great news for me..these photos may find their way home.
I thought that I had a photo of her sister..now I am 100 percent positive that I do..her maiden name of Hannant was the clue I needed..tune in tomorrow to more of the Mystery of Aunt Fan! Thanks Iggy! :)
