Photo Number 467

This is a Cabinet Card that I purchased at the Antique Mall in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota.

There I darkened the bottom part of the Cabinet Card.  Esther Lockood ( Lockwood?), she has a beautiful small hair comb, earrings, a necklace with what appears to be a ring and a heart shaped locket, she also has a star shaped pin and a watch chain.  The lapels on her jacket are ornate and very large. 

Esther Lockwood back Eliza On the back of the Cabinet Card the name Eliza appears.

I think this photo was taken sometime between 1890 and 1900.  Hirshburg Bros. of Seymour, IND. was the photographer.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

Update from Iggy:


Esther S. Lockwood (b. 23-Jan-1873 in Illinios d. 04-Nov-1930 in Akron, Summit County, Ohio at the age of 57. She was married to Stephen U. (or V.) Lockwood and her parents were Glen Gaslin and May Gammil.


Her husband Stephen was born 1866 and died in 1931. They are buried in Union Township, Gibson County, Indiana.




Update from Connie: 


They had one daughter for sure  Fay Lockwood who died on September 07, 1894 at the age of 10 months and 22 days.  Her Headstone is at the Walnut Hill Cemetery in Indiana. 


Update from Iggy: Here is the 1910 Census for Jessie Glenn 
 1910 United States Federal Census
Name: Jessie G Lockwood 
Gibson County, Indiana
Age in 1910: 19 
Estimated Birth Year: 1891

Esther was Jessie Glenn's Mother, I was not sure. It seems that Esther was 26 years younger than her husband.

  1. Two things stand out to me : the quality of the photograph (superb) and that almost rather haunting look in the girls eyes.

  2. I agree with Alan... such expressive eyes - her earrings are almost lost when you look at her face since her eyes are to drown in...

  3. P.s., Seymour, Indiana is located in Jackson County and is about 60 miles south of Indianapolis and about 60 miles north of Louisville, Kentucky.

  4. Are you sure it's Lockwood? I don't see a W in there. She is really a lovely subject and such a treat with all her finery.

  5. I second Alan, the eyes, almost look like they would follow you around the room.

  6. Beautiful Photo.
    LOVE the antique mall in Detroit Lakes. The Shady Hallow Flea market in DL is where I started my collection of old Photos. "Instant Realities" someone had them labeled as.

    Which includes a picture of Esther's tombstone, her husband Stephen was born 1866 and died in 1931. They are buried in Union Township, Gibson County, Indiana.
