Photo Number 820

This is a CdV from the third antique shop in Dorset Minnesota.
Amanda Josephson Dorset 3
John Phillips and his sons were in Lake City from 1878 to 1879, then from the 1890s to 1902.   I will guess that this CdV was taken in 1878 or 1879 because of the lacy trims around her neck and the pleated cuffs on her sleeves.  Her hair is simply pulled back and adorned with what looks to be a velvet headband or ribbon. Since she has flowers on her bodice this may be a wedding photograph.

    He had a son still living in Modesto - I'll email this info.

    I've not had time to trace Amanda's daughter Ellen - perhaps she had offspring.

    3. Oh, wow, Iggy, I checked that link for Find A Grave. That is less than an hour's drive from me. Far Side, if you need someone to do some local checking, let me know. How exciting to have a potential Full Circle come so close to home!

  9. Funnily enough she looks like a boy scout I featured today in a post. Same pose, same eyes.
