Photo Number 1014

This is another Cabinet Card from Craig’s Collection.
Clara and Edd Probst and daughter Cab Card Craig
C.H. Herrick was the photographer at 141 + 143 W. Federal St. Youngstown, O
Interesting how Ohio is known as O.
Clara and Edd Probst and daughter Cab Card Craig back
(Cousin)  Clara + Edd Probst + daughter
Note that the name on the back is Blackburn at the same address.
Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again.:)

Update From Iggy:
Clara E Kaiser (b. Oct 1862 d. 1948) and Frank Edward Probst (b. Jul 8, 1859 d. Jan. 17, 1937), a county clerk and later paymaster for the "Street Railway Company", were married in 1881. The daughter does not appear in the 1900 US census. Clara's find-a-grave memorial tells us, the daughter was Henrietta E. Probst (1885 - 1895) who must have died shortly after this photo was taken.

Frank Edward was known as Frank only in the 1900 US Census and F. Edward in most other records.

  1. The mom and child share the same hairstyle. A lovely old photo.

  2. Old photos usually show people that look different to what we look like today, their expressions are most of the time more stiff, more serious, we can see they're from another era, this photo is a different case, I think it's because it's so clear and sharp and because they don't look too serious, they all have a little bit of a smile in their faces, that I can totally see them as people of this era, of course their clothes and hairstyles are different, but I can totally recognize in their expressions a family that could be living in these times. I guess sometimes I see old photos and I can see that the people in them are dead, I can see in their expressions that they belong in a time far from ours, it's very obvious, this family here looks very alive to me. I like this photo.

    1. Thanks Iggy, it is sad that the daughter died shortly after this photo was taken. I will guess that she is six in this photo so that would make the year about 1891. :)

  4. Sad to think the daughter died so soon after this photograph--although, at least the family had this keepsake to remember her by. She looked like a sweet girl. Interesting expression.
