Photo Number 480

This is another photo from Janice, it is part of the Dyer Mystery Album.
Dyer 09 Baker of Columbus, O was the photographer. During the 1880’s is was very common for a photographer to display his medals on the back of his work.  He won lots of awards too..the last one featured on this Cabinet Card was in 1889.  So we can date this photo 1889 or 1890.
This young lady has a pin at the neckline of her dress and a ribbon that is tied around her neck. Her hair is pulled back and braided, or pulled into a low bun. All things that suggest the late 1880’s.  Dyer 09 name
Her name is Myrtle..that is it ..it is the only clue we have.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

Update: Iggy and Abra have been doing their magic! 


From Iggy:
Myrtle Van Schoyck b: October 11, 1872 in Hilliard, Franklin Co., Ohio d: October 19, 1951 in Shreve, Ohio married to Lemuel Dyer b: October 7, 1877 in Macksburgh, Ohio d: October 27, 1941 in Shreve, Ohio



From Abra:
I found a Myrtle Dyer, wife of Lemuel, in the 1930 census, with three children (Vivian, Richard, Robert). She was born about 1876. Looking back, the 1910 census has them living in West Virginia, married 4 years, 2 children (Vivian & Richard), neighbors to Frank Dyer family, also born in Ohio(possibly Lemuel's brother). Frank & Lemuel are working in the oil wells. In 1920, they are living in Clinton Twshp/Shreve Village, Wayne Co. Ohio. Lemuel is an oil pumper for Preston Oil Co. in both the 1920 & 1930 censuses.


Found a public family tree with Myrtle VanSchoyck, married to Lemuel Dyer. Her parents are George Washington VanSchoyck and Arminta Davidson. These would be some names to look for in connection with the album. Her siblings are Wayne(spouse Edith Schale), Minnie(spouse William Fishinger), Harvey(spouse Lenora ?), Aubrey(spouse Nellie Proctor), Inez(marriage/spouse unknown)Clay(Irene Tinnon), and Monyleta(marriage/spouse unknown)

  1. We have two or three clues - she appears to be about 18 (give or take a bit) so she would have been born around 1868-1875. She may (or may not) be related in some way to Susie Walcutt. And she was in Columbus around 1890.

    From a quick look at the census records, it does not appear she is Myrtle Walcutt or a Ringhausen. She might be Myrtle Baker (a cousin on Susie's mom's side), or Myrtle Mohr (a sister in law). I've no proof - but will investigate further if time permits.

  2. I find all the red ink interesting on this photograph. It's almost like the ink saturated the photo and gave it a rosy hue. I realize it's probably an illusion, but...do you see it too?

    This might be our Myrtle. Now...to figure out her maiden name.
