This is a photo from 1888 to 1900. This is a cabinet card, named such as it was usually put in a cabinet. Cabinet cards usually measure 4 and 1/4 by 6 and 1/2 inches. I call this Miss Clara with a little frizz and a pin curl. She also appears to have a barrette in her hair and a huge bow at the back of her head.
This is the back of the photo. I believe it says Miss Clara Frech. I found two young ladies in the 1880 census at Columbus Ohio in Franklin County. John and Rosa’s daughter Clara who was ten, and Albert (a bartender) and Mary’s daughter who was eight. Both families were of Bavarian decent.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
I would like to thank the Blogger Team for selecting Forgotten Old Photos as their Blog of Note on November 15, 2010. It was an honor that I did not expect, but one that I do appreciate!! The main goal of this blog has always been to look at old photos and reunite them with their family when ever possible. I would also like to thank Abra, Norkio and Iggy whose research skills and expertise make my labor of love with these old photos successful. I would like to welcome all the new followers, your comments are always appreciated:)
Update: A Family tree was found listing Clara..both of them. I sent off an email to the Family Tree Owner. I am waiting to hear from them…Thanks Iggy for the lead! :)
I heard from Mike:
My grandmother was a Frech and so that is where Clara comes in at. There are 2 Clara Frechs in the line. One being born in Aug 1869 to John Jospeh and Rose and then the other Clara born Dec 1879 to Albert and Mary. Albert was my Great Grandfather. He was indeed a bartender. My initial guess is that She is the later one born in 1879. That would put her in the 8-12 age group for this incredible photo and that would fit. Its funny because not long ago, I had someone email me a listing on ebay with an old Christmas card with Clara's signature on it. WOW this is awesome to see such a great photo. Thank you for sharing. I will email you my mailing address :-)
Wow This was one of the fastest identifications ever..Miss Clara is going home:)
