I think this says Minnie Wishant…or Nishant edited to Wishart

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)

Update from Iggy:
I am pretty sure this is Minnie (Mary) Wishart (b. abt 1862). Her father, Dr. John Wilson Wishart (b. abt 1830), was a surgeon during the Civil War (he was very busy at Gettysburg where his unit suffered badly). They later lived in Pittsburgh, PA.

Minnie/Mary and her sister Alice never married and lived together in Pittsburgh, where they ran a "rooming house".

  1. The surname could be Wishart - it's quite common in Scotland :-) Jo
