This is a CdV that I purchased at a quaint little Antique Mall in Grand Forks, North Dakota.
I can never pass up the ones with names. This one says Our Grandmother Ann Foster Haines. How old do you think she is in this photo? I am encouraged by the OUR part..that must mean that there are several Grandchildren.
This is the back of the CdV J. Bainbridge at No. 28 Broad Street Trenton, N.J. The Street address was a big clue. This photographer was at this location from 1873 to 1877. So we will date this photo right at 1877.
I did a priliminary search..was her name Anna or Ann? Was her maiden name Foster or is it a middle name? I believe her married name is Haines. ( Because of a photo I will show you tomorrow.)
There are a few Ann Haines out there..which one is the right one?
This week we we look at photos that all have names..maybe we will find some relatives this week for some of the Forgottens.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
Update from Abra:
I did find an Ann Foster married to Samuel H Haines, born 24 Feb 1821 in Trenton, Burlington Co, NewJersey, died 17 Aug, 1881, in Rowley, Buchanan, Iowa. I wonder if she traveled back to visit family, as I believe you are correct with the photo dating as late 1870s (which seems to fit with her age), but she was living in Ohio/Iowa in the 1850s already. It appears there were at least five children. This is the Haines family according to the 1860 census: Samuel(38)born New Jersey; Ann(39)born New Jersey; Edward(14), born New Jersey; Elizabeth(9)born Ohio; William (5) born Ohio; Susannah (3) born Ohio; Olive(1) born in Iowa. Samuel Haines was a farmer, and had real estate valued at 2400, and personal estate of 400. This was the second highest real estate value in Homer Township.
